Michael Krammer, the President of SK Rapid
«We all — the General Manager, CFO and I — we were really excited about the RMA lecture. But, of course, most of all we liked the questions of students, testifying to their already high enough professionalism and deep immersion in the topic of football management. Well, I hope the students liked our answers: in any case, we tried to make them as Frank and complete as possible. I wish you great success in all your endeavors, you deserve them»
Chris Unger, FIFA director of competitions
«RMA students asked me many interesting questions, some I could not even answer. They showed themselves to be competent, thoughtful people. Some of them were more worried about aspects related to business, advertising, marketing, others — sports. But all of them showed a high level of immersion in the topic. In general — I really liked them. Because I am a person, for whom football is not just work, it is a passion, and it is always pleasant for me to be among my colleagues who are like me in this».
Hadrien Perazzini, the Head of Development and Partnership Department of Arsenal FC
«It has been a real pleasure spending some time with RMA’s very engaged students and discuss football business related maters. I’m grateful for the opportunity RMA gave me and I wish all the best to the very professional staff and all students for their future carrier in sport, hoping they will bring a bit of “The Arsenal way” along their carriers».
Italo Zanci, general director of AS Roma
«To me it was an honor to speak to the students at the RMA business school, particularly, since not so long ago I myself have graduated with a degree in Sports Management, and just like these students set behind the desk and studied the material. I think what RMA is doing is very important and indispensable to the development of soccer management system in Russia. Thank you, and Forza RMA!»
Steve Atkins, the head of PR department at FC «Chelsea»
«On behalf of FC «Chelsea» I would like to thank RMA business school for their invitation to give a lecture. This experience was very helpful, mainly because the students have been asking really hard and professional questions».
Pedro Cunha Ferreira, chairman at the board of directors of SCP Sporting, director of SCP Sporting Academy
«To me the striving toward knowledge - the most commendable way of achieving one’s goals and following one’s dreams, while lecturing - one of the most noble opportunities to aid others along their way».
Martin Kind, president of FC Hannover 96
«I think it is of extreme importance when the freshmen sports managers, who just started out in this field, have a direct access to the experienced colleagues. Even better when the dialog can be built not just within the constraints of your own country, but on an international level. And it was very interesting to be part of that dialogue».
Javier Faus, economic vice-president at FC Barcelona
«It turned out, some of the students at RMA were already familiar with the structure and idiosyncrasies of management at FC “Barcelona” as well as our junior academy, from their internship in Spain taken back in 2011. I strongly believe it is that kind of practical education and a real experience of being able to address any question of interest to the executives of the clubs - that is the most effective».
Mark Aronson, senior vice-president of NBA
«My communication with the students of RMA, the questions I have received from them, all suggest the high quality of education they receive as part of this program, and I have no doubt that ahead of them lies a bright professional future in the sports industry».
Michael Bolingbroke, operational director at FC «Manchester United» (England)
«Soccer is above any and all borders and language barriers. No matter which country you represent, what dialect you might have, the language of sports unites all of us. My advice to the students of RMA - use this to your best advantage».
