Master’s Final Project (MFP)

As the culmination of the educational process in the University Master’s in Sports Management, the purpose of the Master’s Final Project is to develop and then defend a business plan. Creating this business plan allows students to apply multiple areas of knowledge examined in the Master’s within a specific business and a real management scenario.


Students must turn in the Master’s Final Project, which will be supervised by a PhD professor affiliated with the Master’s programme. This project must be publicly defended before a committee made up of PhD professors in the Master’s programme.

Defence of the project

The student will have ten minutes to defend their project. They should prioritise the aspects from their project that they deem the most important and make a clear, precise and comprehensive summary of it. Once this presentation is over, the student must respond to any observations, comments and questions from the members of the panel.

The Master’s project may be written in Catalan or Spanish, although the Master's and Doctorate Academic Management Team can authorise its being submitting in another language with a prior request in writing from the director. In this case, an abstract of the project must be submitted in Spanish or Catalan.

Evaluation criteria

The criteria for evaluating the Master’s Final Project refer to the competences attained during the process of developing it, the final product and its defence. For this reason, the final evaluation will be the outcome of different partial evaluations:

  • Competences attained during the process of developing the project: The student’s persistence and perseverance in developing the project will be evaluated, along with their progress in acquiring the skills and attitudes needed for research and intervention. This assessment will be made by the project monitor or supervisor.
  • Product: The project will be assessed according to different aspects borne in mind by the majority of scholarly publications to ensure the coherence and quality of research. The project supervisor and the members of the panel will issue a report prior to the defence which will be submitted to the Post-Graduate Committee at least one week in advance.
  • Competences achieved in the oral defence: The clarity, precision, originality and quality of the oral presentation of the project will be assessed depending on the conditions required by oral communication before a panel.
  • The final mark of the project will be issued by the panel in an official grade report.
