SBI Barcelona & VSI Launch Football Business Management Programme

Wed 14th Jun 2017 | Football Club Management

The Sports Business Institute Barcelona (SBI) and VSI Executive Education have joined forces to launch the Online Postgraduate in Football Business Management, starting in October 2017.

Under the agreement, SBI & VSI will be delivering a series of online executive education programmes.

The Sports Business Institute is a private learning institution with offices in Barcelona, Spain and Miami, USA, that provides practical executive business training to those aspiring to start or advance their career in sport, with a particular focus on the football industry.

SBI is backed by a reputation of having previously trained executives from the top clubs, leagues, federations and other football organisations worldwide.

VSI is the founder of the world‐leading Masters Degree in Sporting Directorship that, since its inception four years ago, has become the benchmark for accrediting strategic leaders in high profile sport franchises.

A succession of high profile English Premier League players and coaches have studied on the programme in order to facilitate their first move from the technical area to the boardroom.

Diego Valdés, Director General at the Sports Business Institute Barcelona believes the partnership is one destined for great success.

He said: “VSI has established an excellent reputation in executive sport education and represent a great partner for our institute.

“Our organisations share the common objective of enhancing the development of the football industry, enabling learners from around the globe to enter into a truly international programme with guest speakers from the top football organizations worldwide."

VSI Executive Director Tony Faulkner added: ¨We are delighted to join forces with SBI in order to provide the best possible career training for the global market of the business of football.

“Football is a financially booming business, desperate to engage appropriately qualified individuals, capable of delivering a sustainable legacy for the people’s sport.

“This course will create a talent pool of highly motivated individuals to satisfy the game’s need whilst developing a global alumni to continue learning after completion of the course.

“Most importantly, it is an industry‐oriented vocational programme with the intention to lead to real jobs in this most exciting of industries.”

The programme will start in October 2017 and will have the presence of top guest speakers from executives across the football industry.
