Sign-up for an inspirational way to launch your career by taking the long route to success!

Thanks to a new partnership between AFC Wimbledon Education Hub and Longford International College, students can reach for the stars in their business careers by enrolling for the Masters in Elite Management course.

It’s an online and interactive way of learning that’s supported by figures in elite sport who have made it to the top, including former World Cup winner Jurgen Klinsmann, ex-Manchester United coach Mike Phelan and Karen Carney - the record appearance holder for England Lionesses.

Students from home and abroad can apply for this coveted course via our landing page for the AFC Wimbledon Education Hub

Signing up in the above way will mean that our club benefits from funding due to the link-up with this renowned college. 

Speaking about the partnership, Professor Vincent English said: “At Longford International College we believe in the power of the community and sport to bring people together. We also recognise that education is needed to break down barriers of racism, gender and religion. That’s why Longford is delighted to work with AFC Wimbledon – a club which shares many of our values of inclusion and community development.

“A football club, just like a university, should be the heartbeat of the community. Both should lead the way in providing a better life for everyone. The skill base that a football club and college can bring should drive the engine for prosperity and positive change in the community.”

The Masters in Elite Management course offers the perfect match for students with a managerial background and profile who are seeking to build an elite business career in today’s increasingly globalised market place. Many lessons can be learned from the elite in the world of sport, particularly those who have performed, delivered and achieved the highest honours in the game.

The course aims to provide you with the knowledge, skills and competencies required to become an elite performer in business, helping you to acquire the winning mindsets of top performing CEOs who turn their unrelenting self-belief into hard and fast business impact.

At the end of the seven-month degree, students will be hosted in Manchester for a two-day ‘Bootcamp’, where the theory learned will be brought to life through real world examples.

The six modules (each lasting 8-10 weeks) are as follows:

  • Strategic Management
  • Management skills
  • Innovation for success
  • Financial Management
  • Impactful Management
  • Brand Management

Longford College also offers a range of other sports and business related courses including the following:

  • MSc Elite Management and Leadership
  • MBA Football Business
  • Executive MBA
  • Professional Diploma Sports Law
  • Professional Diploma Executive Business Coaching Level 2
  • Professional Diploma ESPORTS
