Gathering at Soccerex Welcome to Rio de Janeiro! "I am sure that the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil will provide a trigger for long-term and sustained social, cultural and educational development and that the power of our game will have a positive impact on the Brazilian society." President Blatter
Dear alumni member, We trust this letter finds you well. For this year´s gathering, we have decided to do something new and special. FIFA Master has joined forces with Football Industry MBA (FIMBA). The gathering will happen during Soccerex Global Convention, in the same venue where the event will take place. That´s without mentioning the beautiful scenery of Copacabana beach! A combined gathering will allow us to further exchange experiences with fellow executives that have studied sports administration. Mid-way throughout the day we will listen one of the top names of the industry, and this all to be followed by an incredible match at Joao Havelange Stadium, built for the Pan-American Games!

About Liverpool Football Industries MBA The MBA (Football Industries) was the first MBA qualification in the world to focus upon the rapidly expanding worldwide interest in the professionalisation, business, and marketing of football. It is aimed at students wishing to pursue careers in the variety of commercial and administrative organisations with an interest in football. It thus combines professional development in the field of the football industries with a critical awareness of the issues involved in football management, marketing, and administration. This MBA has an excellent reputation among executives and managers in the game and their graduates have an excellent record of success, often utilising the contacts that they have been able to make while studying in Liverpool. MBA graduates have found jobs with (amongst others): UEFA, FIFA Marketing, the Football Association, the Football League, the Swiss Football Association, the Professional Footballers Association; several clubs in England (including Arsenal, Everton, Leeds United, Liverpool, Manchester City, Fulham, Chelsea); clubs in France, Brazil, China, Germany, Italy; media and marketing companies such as IMG, Sport5, Octagon, UFA, Zone Marketing and The Financial Times.
