Executive Program in Sports Management

SBA Sport Business Administration

"The best professional football league in the world, combined with the expertise of Centro de Estudios Garrigues and law firm Garrigues and the backing of the National Sports Council, guarantee advanced training of the highest quality with a practical and professional approach"

The enormous physical and mental dedication required to be a professional athlete and the heavy time commitment mean that many professional athletes often find it difficult to be able to combine their professional activities with the academic training necessary to enable them to adequately build their future, following the end of their sporting career.

The transition from professional athlete to a new professional career should be planned for while athletes are still active and should be founded on the right choice of academic training.

The business transactions being performed in this industry and the consequent demand for professional advice are currently attracting the interest of professionals, advisers, business administration and law students who view this market as an area in which to specialize.

Conscious of this, Centro de Estudios Garrigues (a prestigious institution in the Spanish and international business community), law firm Garrigues (the leading law firm in mainland Europe), through its specialist Sports & Entertainment practice, and LaLiga have created a specialized sports training program designed to cater to the concerns of the groups at which it is aimed, resulting from the high level of knowledge of both the business world and the sports and entertainment industry shared by Centro de Estudios Garrigues and law firm Garrigues.
