Full description

International Football Business Institute:

The International Football Business Institute opened its doors for the first batch of students in September 2016. After a year filled with unique insights from more than 90 guest speakers, unique network opportunities and six Experience Tours, the students were thoroughly prepared for the labour market. As the second and third academic year continued this trend, we want to increase our focus on innovation and development in the coming period. We aim to distribute and apply the knowledge and expertise present in our institute.

Programme Overview

A Postgraduate degree from the University of Brussels - Vrije Universiteit Brussel, organised and coordinated by the International Football Business Institute (IFBI).

The social impact of football cannot be underestimated. No other sport touches the heart of so many people every week. Football and passion are two words that are difficult to separate but are by themselves not enough to succeed professionally in the sport. Working in the football industry requires knowledge, engagement, commitment and training. We strive to particularly use this last component, training, to guide young, talented professionals towards a promising career in the international football business industry.

The Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) is the backbone of our Postgraduate programme in International Football Business. As Belgium’s leading university in the field of internationalisation, the VUB enabled the expansion of our programme in 2016. Now, three years later, we offer a high-end programme, fully in line with the core values of the VUB: fairly unique, forming a bridge between academia, the professional field and the public sphere.

Career Opportunities

After successfully completing the entire programme, the aim is obviously to get a job in the football industry. The whole year will be filled with opportunities to reach that goal. You will receive a large number of lectures from over 80 international guest lecturers who work in the football industry. It is important to be very active in class and to participate. With a maximum of 25 students, the group will be rather compact and you will all have the opportunity to make a personal connection with the lecturer.
The direction from your career depends on several elements. Your educational background, different language skills and area of interest play a very important role in the decisions you have to take after completing the course. IFBI will, of course, help and guide you to create your destiny.
