At UCFB we are proud to be a market leader in Higher Education, dedicated to the delivery of university degrees in the strategic business facets of the football and sports industries. We have developed a profile of pioneering postgraduate qualifications to enable those working within the industry to drive forward their career, and to provide a gateway for those aspiring to pursue their ambitions of working in this exciting global multi-billion pound market sector.

UCFB is excited to announce the launch of our Masters suite of programmes in autumn 2015, commencing with our world-class MSc Sport Management.

As with all of our programmes, our MSc Sport Management will be taught by leading figures in football business and sports academia, within the inspirational learning environment of Wembley Stadium, with facilities overlooking the iconic pitch to motivate and enthuse you. Our students will have the opportunity to hear from and work with leaders from the industry, and develop specific interests through a research dissertation.

Through the delivery of a second ground-breaking postgraduate degree, UCFB Wembley, in partnership with the Real Madrid Graduate School, have created the unprecedented opportunity for students to live, learn and work inside of the world’s greatest sporting venue, Wembley Stadium, as well as experience the inner workings of the world’s biggest football club, Real Madrid. In addition to the inimitable experience delivered at UCFB Wembley, our MSc International Sport Management students undertake a period of study at the Real Madrid Graduate School, providing an unrivalled international sports education and an unparalleled experiential opportunity for aspiring sports leaders.

UCFB holds high quality standards for all its programmes, ensuring a reputation for delivering world class education. We have developed our taught programmes with great care in partnership with the wider and global sports industry to ensure that not only do our students have best in class business and management capabilities, but also understand the skills required and the nuances of the ranges of sports careers available.

Our academic and pastoral staff are well-renowned, passionate and care deeply about you and our institution. As a UCFB Masters student your experience is based upon the ‘touch points’ on a day to day basis and at UCFB we ensure that our staff are approachable and support you in your academic, career and personal development.

As a capstone to the Masters degrees, students will have the opportunity to specialise their academic experience by undertaking a research project with a sports organisation, leveraging UCFB’s global network of contacts with leading organisations such as The Football Association, BBC Sport, the US Tennis Association, the Rugby Football League, as well as a multitude of football and sporting clubs both domestically and overseas. Short term placements, internships and projects are also available via our dedicated Employability and Enrichment team.

“Our postgraduate programmes have been developed with great care in partnership with the wider and global sports industries to ensure that not only do our students gain best-in-class business and management capabilities, underpinned by academic rigor, but also understand the skills required and the nuances of the range of sports careers.”
