UCFB is a world first in higher education, dedicated to the delivery of university degrees and executive education in the football, sport and events industries.
The business was founded by UCFB Chairman and Burnley FC Director Brendan Flood, who recognised the need for a robust provision of sports business education to provide these industries with professionals equipped with industry-specific strategic insight, direction and leadership. UCFB inimitably bridges the gap between education and business.
After initially opening at Burnley’s Turf Moor stadium, UCFB has since opened two further world-class campuses in London and Manchester, with Wembley Stadium and the Etihad Stadium at their heart.
UCFB Wembley and UCFB Etihad Campus both feature state-of-the-art teaching facilities overlooking the stadiums’ pitches, enabling students to live, learn and work at the heart of these industries. Students also have access to a number of other leading facilities in each respective city to further their unique educational experience and best prepare them for a career in this multi-billion-pound sector.
As well as partnerships with the likes of The FA, The National League and Real Madrid Graduate School – Universidad Europea, UCFB’s partnership with the League Managers Association provides students access to LMA’s members as part of their Executive Guest Speaker Series.
