WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what students say!

One of the best decisions I have made was to do the MBA.

KAREN CARNEY MBE

Former Footballer  and now TV Pundit

Since the beginning of the course, I had all the tools to get the most of the course and especially the people involved in it helped me to explore new challenges. The Leadership Course has been very effective and applicable to my personal life and job. Recommended to everybody. Now I am doing the MBA at Longford.

INTERVIEW

The MBA is awesome. I have learned more than I could have imagined.

JÜRGEN KLINSMANN
INTERVIEW

I want to share my feeling doing this course because I think it can be great for a lot of players and also for people around us like staff, physiotherapists, doctors, managers etc. This course brings me the opportunity to learn about something that I love, and it was so easy to follow, the lessons were very interesting, 70 mins per week all connected paying and attention, listen to and discussing a lot of doubts and questions. So I recommend this MBA to everyone to improve your knowledge about this future job or role, and most important because after football we are still young and we are winning time doing the course preparing ourselves a little bit better for this moment.

WILLY CARABELLO – SOUTHAMPTON FC

The MBA is a very important and useful course for any footballer getting ready to leave the game. I found the course interesting and engaging.
