The University of Miami and LaLiga North America Partnership

University of Miami School of Education and Human Development undergraduate students, majoring and minoring in Sport Administration, travelled to Spain for a week-long immersive experience through a partnership with LaLiga Business School. During LaLiga Week, the 15 students in the program learned about LaLiga’s business strategy through a series of activities during their visit. They engaged with club professionals through a series of lectures, toured numerous stadiums, visited a sport performance training center for elite athletes, learned from leaders of a local non-profit soccer club, and attended a few matches, both in Madrid and Barcelona.
