Final stretch for the start of the IV Master’s Degree in Big Data applied to football scouting

The IV edition of the Master’s Degree in Big Data applied to Football Scouting is in the final stretch of its enrolment period. Sevilla FC has opened the enrolment period for this new course, which will start on 28 March, with the challenge of continuing to break participation records and surpassing the barrier of 200 students between the different editions. In this edition, the students will once again receive direct training from leading figures in the sector such as Monchi and Víctor Orta, as well as different professionals from world-class clubs such as Sevilla FC, Leeds United, Aston Villa, Sporting Lisbon, Villarreal CF and Club Atlético Peñarol. This facilitates not only learning oriented to the working reality of the industry, but also the possibility of direct contact with these professionals and entities.

This Master’s Degree aims both to complete the professional profile of scouts with specific training on how to use data in the service of their work processes, as well as to focus on the professionalisation of the profile of data analysts applied to football. Therefore, the Master is taught by the best professionals in the field. It is a 100% online experience, although one of the sessions will always take place in person at the Sevillian club’s facilities. Although the course does not start until the end of March, students can start the training from the moment they formalise their enrolment, accessing the PreMaster’s course and with the possibility of taking the three preparatory diplomas that are included at no additional cost once the enrolment has been formalised. It should also be noted that places are limited, and you can register from this very moment through this link.
