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.
