¨Well-researched, engaging, challenging and thoroughly enjoyable, these are first-rate courses useful for both people in the football industry or aspiring to work in football. The content was highly relevant and up-to-date, reflecting the different approaches to this fast-paced industry, while also looking at the potential developments and opportunities. SBI Director, Diego Valdes, has fantastic experience in the many aspects of football and has the ability to impart knowledge in an engaging and interesting manner, which encourages participants to think for themselves and gain a deep understanding of the field. Working in the football industry myself, I have been able to improve my skill-set and ability to perform my job thanks to this course.

Studying a Masters at the Sports Business Institute Barcelona has allowed me to gain a full understanding on the business side of football. In many ways it has opened my eyes into the sector that I work in as a professional footballer. They are top professionals that are well-connected in the sports industry.
