The LMA Institute of Leadership and High Performance offers those looking for a formal qualification the opportunity to obtain a Diploma in Football Management, academically accredited by the University of Liverpool.

The programme has been built after an extensive period of research and analysis across the professional game into the complexities and challenges faced by those who choose to build a career in football management and coaching.

It is delivered on a modular basis, combining two residential summer schools and seven one-day workshops during the course of the year.

Assessment is via assignments, group work and presentations.

Accredited by the University of Liverpool, this one-year, vocationally relevant course provides a bridge between the game’s coaching qualifications and the realities of management in the modern game. 

Please note that applications for the 2023-2024 Diploma have now closed.
