Products within the football industry attract the most powerful global brands, such as Nike, BMW, Mercedes, Samsung, Intel, Budweiser, Coca Cola and McDonalds. In contrast, many clubs and organisations struggle to break even and meet their responsibilities of paying creditors and the tax authorities, which supports the need for this degree to produce commercially astute business and finance graduates.
Your studies will focus on the core functions of football business management and will be supplemented by the financial pathway. The finance pathway modules introduce you to the principles of financial accounting, management accounting and require you to integrate theory with practice. You will also build upon your understanding of football business and be introduced to international business models, management concepts, business planning, contemporary issues and financial management. You will analyse and evaluate global sources of revenue and issues of financial governance.

There is a common core across the degrees in the first year so that all students benefit from a broad exposure to the fundamentals of business management. You will develop a chosen specialism as well as an understanding of how this fits in with other core disciplines in the football and wider sports industry. The special features of the football and sports industry are also identified in each business studies module, exploring the core fundamentals of the football and sports sector.
In the second year, the study time is divided between the football and/or sports business pathway and your chosen specialism.
The third year includes a football or sports business research project (dissertation). You will graduate with the satisfaction of having researched a pressing issue in the football and sports industry through having had the opportunity to discuss your work decisions and recommendations with those in the football and sports business grappling with the very same question(s).
Football Business & Finance integrates the core functions of business management with financial accounting in the context of football and sports organisations and governing bodies. The degree monitors the intense media coverage of contemporary football issues to apply relevant themes to stimulate and enhance the student learning experience. You will be taught in lectures and participate in stimulating seminar debates, with support from UCFB’s virtual learning environment to fully encompass the academic experience. The interconnected facets of football business are applied across a diverse range of assessment strategies to provide you with a contextual insight of how sources of finance affect an organisation’s performance, and how that performance affects an organisation’s bottom line. This degree will prepare you for a career in commercial business and finance, both inside and outside the sector.
Throughout all three years of study, core business modules are supplemented by finance modules which require you to understand and apply the fundamentals of accounting terminology such as balance sheets, cash flow, gearing ratios, return on investment, net present value and consolidated accounts. You will have a comprehensive set of transferable skills to provide you with a competitive edge in business. The final year contains a range of elective modules which allows you freedom to pursue a new area that interests you the most, providing you with greater flexibility upon graduation.
