The Universidad Católica Argentina, partner of CIES since 2004, has officially opened the 8th edition of the UCA/FIFA/CIES Programme in sport law and sport management, which will be attended by 36 students until next November.

During the opening ceremony, the students were welcomed by Dr Gabriel Limodio, dean of the law faculty, Dr José Claría, director of the Programme, and Vincent Monnier, CIES representative, who explained the history, concept and objectives of the FIFA/CIES International University Network. Dr Limodio, in particular, stressed the success of the Programme, which, over the years, has become a flagship course in the Argentinean sport management landscape.

It should also be noted that almost one third of the students of the 8th edition come from abroad (Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru and France), which proves the excellent reputation of the Programme beyond the Argentinean borders.
