The faculty at the Sports Business Centre was very helpful during the course. As I was fairly new to the pattern of studies in the UK, they helped me settle in by offering guidance as and when I required it. Content covered within the course was very up to date and pertinent to industry needs. The weekly seminars also gave all the students an opportunity to interact with people working in different sports, which offered new ideas and perspectives.

After graduating from Birkbeck, I secured an internship with the Football Association, which led to a permanent role at England’s National Football Training Centre, St. George’s Park. I currently work with JSW Sports, a company that owns and operates Bengaluru FC, Delhi Daredevils, and Haryana Steelers. The company also built and operates the Inspire Institute of Sport, India’s only state-of-the-art Olympic training centre.
