The 20th edition of the FIFA Master, running from 2019-2020, is now open for applications.
Organised by the International Centre for Sport Studies (CIES), the International MA in Management, Law and Humanities of Sport – the FIFA Master is designed to provide management education in the world of sport.
The course is run in partnership with three European universities: De Montfort University (Leicester, England), SDA Bocconi School of Management (Milan, Italy) and the University of Neuchatel (Switzerland).
Since its inception, 90 per cent of the 500 graduates are working in sport. Among the places they can be found are football governing bodies (FIFA, UEFA, the AFC and the Italian football federation), football clubs (Juventus, Barcelona and Manchester City), other sporting bodies (the IOC, and international equestrian and volleyball federations), sportswear brands (adidas) and more.
Receiving many awards since being established, the FIFA Master has been ranked as Sport Business International’s top Postgraduate Sport Management programme in Europe for six of the last seven years, while topping the global standings in 2014.
The deadline for applications is midday on Friday 11 January 2019.
