Whether you’re already working in the football industry, or are looking to take your first career steps within a club, sports organisation or the football media, then The Football Business Academy’s Professional Master in Football Business course could well be perfect for you.

You’ll spend time in clubs such as Olympique Lyonnais, Benfica, Galatasaray, and Girona FC; will get to meet and talk to some incredible professional professors and guest lecturers from around the world; and will get to network at events such as Soccerex. 

Interesting facts:

2. The FBA are the only school teaching a course in Women’s Football Development!

This is what Kristian Dobrev, Partnerships Director at The FBA, said about the #WhatIf pledge: "Women's football development and empowering women to join the football industry has been part of The FBA's key focus areas since day one.

"As an educational institution, making a #WhatIf pledge was a natural step for us. We believe that this will have a direct impact in bringing football to the next level, and couldn't be happier to work with Women in Football to drive this forward.

"This is a unique opportunity for their members to join The FBA's Professional Master in Football Business and receive all the necessary tools and an optimal learning environment to succeed in this passionate and dynamic industry."

Jane Purdon, CEO at Women in Football, said: “This is an incredible opportunity from The FBA, making this prestigious course a lot more accessible for everyone who would like to work in the industry, or those who already do and are looking to sharpen up their tool kits.

"The #WhatIf movement is all about changing the landscape for women in football forever, and I have no doubt the women taking up this fantastic course will not regret it.”
