The Nigerian sports landscape is replete with immense, yet untapped, business opportunities. There is the need to effectively harvest the enormous potentials in the industry and to also cater to the needs of practitioners, investors and those who need to gain an understanding of sports business. Lagos Business School, in recognition of this need, is organising the Sports Business Management Programme (SBMP), in partnership with LaLiga Business School, Spain. Participants will gain deep insight into the business of sports and build a quality network to leverage their endeavours.

The two-phase programme also incorporates a one-week experiential learning in Madrid, Spain with an emphasis on sports facility management. Tagged “La Liga Week,” the programme features classroom sessions with top-notch Spanish sports administrators/businessmen and visits to notable sports facilities and clubs in Madrid.

Participants will experience an immersion into the science and art of sports business management and will be exposed to perspectives from a series of panel sessions involving renowned sports business enthusiasts and practitioners.


Learning Objectives and Benefits

In the 2-phase seminar, the SBMP features a combination of instructor-led lectures, experience-sharing and panel sessions as well as case studies discussed in study groups to reinforce the learning points.

The modules cover sports economics, entrepreneurship, funding, branding, event management & media, marketing, and policies & regulations, amongst others. Delegates
