Add a degree to your trophy cabinet with The Football League Trust and The Open University.

The Football League Trust has teamed up with The Open University to bring business learning to life. The partnership presents a chance for students to use their sporting passion to fuel their graduation goals.

BA (Hons) Business Management (Sport & Football) is a business degree with a football focus in which students can apply business tactics to the multi-billion pound global game, selecting business and sports modules to match personal career ambitions.

With the flexibility to tackle study in their own free time, regular workshops at inspiring Football League stadia, and developing business skills transferable beyond sport, the course offers a perfect platform for those destined for a higher league.

Angus Martin, The Football League Trust's Business Development for Education Manager, said: "We are delighted to be working in partnership with The Open University on such an exciting project.

"Football has a tremendous power to engage people and we feel that by making much of the learning football related, many people will progress to achieve their Business Management degree and improve their career prospects.

"Some people may end up getting jobs in football through doing this degree but that is not our main intention here, the focus is on people achieving a respected Business Management degree that they can use in virtually any career."

To find out what it's like to study the Business of Football with the world leader in modern distance learning, challenge yourself to the free new three-week online course.

This will provide a taster through interactive media, fascinating themes such as the economics of Football, motivation, team effectiveness, and strategic management.
