#WhatIf University of Liverpool offered fully and partially funded places for females on Football Industries MBA course

The University of Liverpool is again showing its support for Women in Football's #WhatIf campaign by offering full and partial scholarships on its highly regarded Football Industries MBA (FIMBA) exclusively to female students.

This fantastic opportunity – which will see tuition fees of between £18,000 and £24,950 entirely covered for the successful applicants - is aimed at encouraging more women to take up roles in football, off the pitch.

Due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19, there will be intakes in both October 2020 and another in January 2021. The course is flexible and can be studied on either a full-time or part-time basis.

Launched in 1997, FIMBA is the world’s first and only football-focused Master of Business Administration programme.

The programme covers a wide range of subject disciplines from strategy and innovation, to sports economics, marketing and governance; and works across the industry addressing real world challenges in the business of sport.

FIMBA alumni have gone on to work in top football clubs, as well as governing bodies, media and commercial organisations across Europe, Asia, the Americas and Africa

Women in Football’s #WhatIf campaign invites organisations and individuals to make pledges around female involvement in the game.

Interested applicants must hold at least a high 2:1 (65+% in their undergraduate or postgraduate degree); have four or more years of professional/managerial experience and be able to demonstrate leadership potential.

Interested candidates should submit an application for the FIMBA programme. No separate scholarship application is necessary.

All applicants who are offered a place on the programme will be considered against the scholarship criteria.

If candidates are made an offer of a place on the programme, but do not obtain a full scholarship, there is no obligation to undertake the programme.
