Partner of CIES since 2009, the University of the West Indies (UWI) has officially launched the third edition of UWI/FIFA/CIES Postgraduate Diploma in Sports Management. The course will start in January 2012.

The Programme enables people from various professional and sporting horizons to familiarise themselves with modern management tools in key areas such as marketing, law, management, sponsorship, communication, finance and event management. Adapted to regional and national realities, it also offers the opportunity to attend lectures given by international FIFA/CIES experts.

“As a student within the UWI/FIFA/CIES Postgraduate Diploma Programme, my views on Sports Management have already changed. The Programme has been a great learning experience for me that has taken me out of my comfort zone and allowed me to expand my knowledge and skills base. I am now more confident to look ahead and achieve my goals", declared Melissa Howell, a student of the second edition of the Programme.

Another student, Sterling Seebransingh, added: “I have a great passion for sports and have been dreaming of working in this industry for the past few years. I decided to pursue the UWI/FIFA/CIES Programme to give myself a chance and to make my dream a reality. I must say that this Programme exceeded my expectations. The lecturers have been excellent, very knowledgeable, professional, punctual and understanding. The Programme is also well organized and structured, making it fun and enjoyable.”

The International University Network created in the framework of the FIFA/CIES Programme comprises 14 universities in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Egypt, Palestine, Senegal, Spain, South Africa, Trinidad & Tobago, Turkey, Ukraine and Venezula.
