Mission and Vision
Throughout the 20th century, sport was increasingly professionalized. From being a fun, recreational and purely competitive activity, sports began taking steps towards professionalization. Beyond the athletes, other necessary figures were appearing whose functions were increasingly important: referees, physiotherapists, managers, trainers, agents, organizers, among others. The majority of people with these titles were in need of academic qualifications in order to perform their work. Nowadays, what nobody understands is that the trainer of an elite team does not have any formal training or that a referee of the highest level of competitions has not passed any certified tests before supervising a match.
Interestingly, in the 21st century, some principal figures that make the professionalization possible in sports teams carry out their work without any previous training established or agreed for this. Some of these principal figures include general managers, marketing directors, sports managers, technical secretaries, sports scouts... It has been proven that beyond the knowledge of a sport, its market and work experience, there are functions and acquired knowledge from certain positions that must be obtained through academic studies that are specifically focused on the function of obtaining this knowledge.
This, therefore, shines a light on the necessity for professionals, who perform their work in the world of sports, as well as for people who have chosen this new career path for the future, to have superior academic training. This type of training is offered in the UCAM Sports Management University, which reflects through all of its curricula.
