PTI are pleased to announce our partnership with international education institution, The Football Business Academy, providing opportunities to FBA Candidates wanting to work in the sports and entertainment industry.
The Football Business Academy is a Swiss-based high level international educational institution, whose goal is to professionalise the management of the football industry and facilitate the insertion of qualified professionals and future leaders into the game. Its flagship program, a Professional Master in Football Business, was co-developed with international football industry experts around one foremost objective: to provide Candidates with all the necessary tools and an optimal learning environment in order to succeed in this passionate and dynamic industry.
PTI are an integrated digital and technology agency, helping over 75 global sports clubs and entertainment venues activate digital engagement through consultancy, deployment services and commercialisation offerings. Through this partnership, PTI will help candidates gain real-life experience within the sports industry, allowing them to understand the industry on a deeper level.
PTI CEO Mike Bohndiek said “At PTI we are often in a position to educate our clients through our advisory practice. We are delighted to be working with The FBA to extend this education in the opposite direction, to those aspiring to work in the industry. Bringing FBA Candidates into our business will enable them to gain first-hand experience with major sporting organisations and help PTI to stay fresh through the challenger thinking mentality they’ll bring.”
Marcin Chmielewski, The FBA’s Partnerships Manager said “We are excited to partner with PTI. Their digital and commercial expertise, together with their impressive client-base will give our Candidates a chance to work with some of the leading clubs and venues across the UK, including Premier League and EFL clubs. Being part of this fast-paced and constantly evolving industry requires football organisations to look for new and innovative digital services that enable their business to grow. That is why we wanted to collaborate with PTI in order to equip our Candidates with the necessary knowledge and experience to be able to work across top-level sports stadiums and entertainment venues. FBA Candidates will have an amazing opportunity to work with PTI’s team on expanding their international presence and maintaining their already existing portfolio of clients.”
We are looking forward to working with The FBA and are excited about the journey we are able to help create.
