The Centre for Business Management at the University of South Africa (UNISA) is now open for applications from candidates interested to attend the second edition of the FIFA-CIES Programme in Sports Management. The deadline for applications is set to Thursday, 12 February 2009.

UNISA, which became a partner of the FIFA/CIES International University Network last year, has the unique specificity to deliver the FIFA-CIES Programme in Sports Management as a distant learning programme for all the English-speaking countries in Africa.

Distance represents no obstacle for UNISA. Their students reside all across South Africa, Africa and the rest of the world, and modern delivery methods incorporate email, online learning, fax and surface mail to connect their community of students.
