The Higher School of Economics (HSE), the academic partner of the International Centre for Sports Studies (CIES), has launched the registration process for the second edition of the FIFA/CIES course. 

The Programme allows students to acquire essential knowledge in marketing, sponsorship, law, management, communications, finance and the organisation of sports events.

HSE, one of the top Russian universities, has the responsibility of adapting the course content to the needs and requirements for sport administration in Russia. Moreover, the Programme offers students the opportunity to attend conferences delivered by international experts who share original views on the best techniques to manage organisations or sports events both nationally and internationally.

Programme alumnus Alexander Ustinov comments: “I am pleased with the HSE/FIFA/CIES Programme in sport management. During this course I met lots of great professors, industry experts and made new friends. They all had great professional experience and backgrounds from different areas. As a group we became a very friendly team. The key benefits of the programme are the engagement and the participation of top-international experts and the best Russian lecturers and professors in the sports industry. I would recommend everybody to apply for this Programme!”
