There is no better city to earn your BBA in Sports Management degree in than Barcelona.
Barcelona is synonymous with two major sports activities that have served to define the city. In the summer of 1992, Barcelona hosted the Olympics. The city not only received a facelift, modernizing many of the public areas throughout the city, but it left an infrastructure that promotes a continued presence and organization of international games in the city. From the Barcelona Open, traditionally held in mid- to late spring, to the Formula One Speedway that attracts patrons from across the globe, Barcelona stays active all-year-round.
The second iconic Barcelona institution is FC Barcelona, one of the most widely supported football teams in the world. With the likes of Andrés Iniesta, Leo Messi, Sergio Busquets and Javier Mascherano, the club is truly famous and has one of the largest social media followings in the world among sports teams. When you come to visit Barcelona, don’t hesitate to explore Camp Nou or any one of the FIFA activities hosted in the city throughout the season.
Let’s not forget the proximity of the sea. Barcelona’s location situated along the Mediterranean coast makes it ideal for sailing and yachting. Among tourist, locals and professionals, this is a huge draw for the city, and poses a wonderful opportunity for those students interested in water sports. Most notably Barcelona is recognized for the Barcelona World Race, a non-stop, round-the-world yacht race for crews of two, sailed on Open 60 IMOCA monohull boats that starts and finishes in Barcelona, and is organised by the Barcelona Ocean Sailing Foundation (FNOB).
If running is more your style, mark your calendars for the Barcelona Marathon and Cursa de Bombers. The Barcelona Marathon is an annual marathon race over the classic distance of 42,195 km held in Barcelona every March. Attracting the biggest names in international marathon sports, the route starts and finishes at Plaça d'Espanya, at the foot of Montjuïc after weaving its way past Camp Nou, back to Plaça d'Espanya, past Sagrada Família, near the beach, around the old city, back to the shore and again to Plaça d'Espanya.
In April, stay tuned for the Cursa de Bombers (the Firemen’s Race) an annual road running race covering a 10 km stretch that was first organized as a joint venture with Nike as a political call-to-action protesting against the Ayuntamiento de Barcelona (Barcelona City Council) for their refusal to adequately respond to the firefighters' requests for better working conditions. It has since then become a highly popularized race with a lengthy list of well-known participants.
Barcelona’s sports scene is one of the best in Europe, from ameteur clubs to some of the biggest names in the industry, there is no better place to study for your degree.
