Magsi, thanks. yes I have tried it. the EAE program which is a dual degree program seems interesting.
But more I am looking for courses officially under sports clubs or organizations, coz i think it is very important to train next to study. Such as what is held by Real Madrid - UEM. Unfortunately I can not find the tution fee for this course.

My profession is engineering (have master degree in it). But I am also active a little in Sports Journalism and Sports Business. I am interested in MBA in general meaning, specially in sports or engineering. Sports is a hobby for me and I have just friends in this field, nothing more.

No player here knows even "what is MBA" and I wonder why you thaught a player may be interested in getting an MBA degree.

To me, RM-UEM also sounds nice. But till now nobody knows the fee.

Dear Mahdiar,
I am afraid someone is pulling your legs, I have never heard fo a Real Madrid MBA, as I never heard of Mnachester MBA and so on, do not mix merchandising with business school.

The Best MBAs do not have such a short focus they are general programmes.

Look at the four schools in Spain IESE, ESADE, IE and EADA and see which one will fit best.

Good luck

The title is:
"MBA en Gestión de Entidades Deportivas (Alfredo Di Stéfano)"

And I know that Real Madrid is not the only club that runs these kinds of plans. But they are doing this job in collaboration with UEM that is one o the best universities in Spain. (I repeat universities, not business schools).

It is an MBA program in Sports, althaugh UEM has no accrediation contrary to the highest level schools such as ESADE, IESE, EADA and IE. But studying next to training in a Sports Club atmosphere is interesting and valuable for a student of MBA in Sports.

There are other courses by FIFA, IOC, FC Barcelona, Ajax and etc, in collaboration with low level schools such as the one of Johan Cruyff: http://www.cruyffacademics.org/eng/index.asp

Anyway, I am still looking for Real Madrid - UEM programs fees and conditions!

Hi Mahdiar,

If you're still looking, check out the Football Industries MBA, part of the Football Industries Research Group at Liverpool University in the UK. It's been going for about 10 years. You can do it in either one or two years.The Research Group has strong links with both the Management School, the Faculty of Social and Environmental Studies, and the School of History (where I studied). The Football Industries MBA website has all the course details you should need, and links to finding out more about studying in Liverpool ("Capital of Culture 2008", no less). Graduates from the programme have gone on to work for UEFA, FIFA, Arsenal, Everton (bad luck!), Glasgow Rangers, Galatasaray, the Dutch FA, the Scottish Premier League, Deloitte's Sports Business Group, the English Professional Footballer's Association, Nike, and a whole host of others. If you'd like any more information on Liverpool as a place to live, work and study, just get back to me on Find MBA.

Thank you in advance. But it seems too expensive. Is there any offer to fund this MBA program; a kind of scholarship to cover all tuition fee and living costs.
Moreover, this program is not accredited neither in ranking. I wonder while no club or Sport body is behind this program, if the graduate from this program has more chance than an MBA graduate to find a job in Sporty Organizations.

Hi everyone.
One of the schools that you mention in this thread, IE, is offering a specialized master in sports management, I checked it the other day and it looks really interesting.
I am also interested in this area, but I do not want to focus only in football, since there are many other options in the sports industry in general.
I am passing you on the address, I think its worth checking: www.master-sports.ie.edu
I downloaded the brochure and the profesors are really good, I mean with lots of experience in the field, so you get really good contacts from this program the way I see it.

Hi,

Sure. Studying in the UK is definitely getting more and more expensive, and universities increasingly try to tempt foreign students precisely because there are no governmental limits on how much they can charge them. British-born students and students from EU member states still pay considerably less than those in the US, but unlike in the US there are fewer scholarship opportunities. Having said that, the UK is still a very popular place for foreign students to study. Check out the University of Liverpool's postgraduate funding page on their website for details of the various things you might try. Unfortunately some, like the AHRC, BBSRC and EPSRC, are only open to art and humanities, science and engineering students, but there are others. As a general point, always look to see which universities and university departments offer special scholarships. These are often privately funded or set up by former students. Some places also have scholarships for people from particular places - I can think of a couple of institutions with funds for students from Greece, Germany, and India for example. Most departments also offer some form of hardship funding for existing students, though this can often be quite modest - from a few hundred to a thousand pounds. A lot of students do paid work in their spare time, and it is very common to take out a student loan. Barclays and HSBC banks offer Career Development Loans for MBA students, though the interest rates can be high and they have to be repaid quite quickly. You could also look into the possibility of your home government paying all or some of the tuition fees.

Re. Liverpool. Liverpool is a MUCH cheaper place to live than London - the cost of housing, transport and living expenses is, by UK standards, very low.

Hey lukeh, could youy tell me what the conditions are for foreign students in UK to work part time while studying? I mean, is it easy for students from outside Europe, for example from India or from Latin American countries, to get a working permit for such a job?

Hi Juanito,

Sure, no problem. Have a look at the 'Learning' section of the British Council's website, which provides information on all sorts of financial matters relating to work/study in the UK, including scholarship opportunities. Or give your local British Council office a call, and I'm sure they'll be able to help.

As far as working goes, I'm pretty sure that once you've been accepted into a UK programme, you automatically qualify for a working visa for the duration of your period of study. It doesn't matter whether you come from outside Europe or not. However, you are limited to working no more than 20 hours per week during term time. Below is a link the the UK Home Office website which publishes guidelines for students entering the UK:

Hope that helps,
