LMA & UCFB Sign Commercial Partnership

Tue 9th Jun 2015 | Football Club Management

The League Managers Association (LMA) has announced a new 3-year partnership with UCFB. 

UCFB is unique across Higher Education offering University Degrees and Executive Education specifically focused across the football, sport and leisure industries at Wembley Stadium, Santiago Bernabeu Real Madrid and Turf Moor, Burnley.

The partnership will provide UCFB with access to LMA Members to enhance curriculum programmes with their insights and experiences via live Q&A’s and filmed content.

Richard Bevan, LMA Chief Executive, said: “Working in collaboration with an organisation that focuses on the development of knowledge and skills essential to work in football and understanding what is required in football management is a natural fit. 

“The LMA has significantly developed the work it does for its members to aid their continuous learning and to sign a multi-year partnership with UCFB is a strong validation of the quality of our LMA Learning programme and its broader practical applications.

“I look forward to further exciting opportunities ahead with UCFB in the next 3 years and beyond.”

Brendan Flood, UCFB Chairman added: “We are delighted to engage with the LMA and we hope to create many opportunities for its members to share their skills and knowledge with our students. 

“The LMA partnership will add real value to our Executive Education courses for continuing professional development within international sport and for the wider business marketplace.”
