Partner of CIES since 2006, the Université Cheikh Anta Diop (UCAD) in Dakar (Senegal) has officially launched the sixth edition of the FIFA/CIES Programme in sport management. The courses will start in October 2011.

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

“The management of sport in Senegal - in particular within the national federations and the clubs - greatly benefits from this Programme” declared Leopold Germain Senghor, alumni of the Programme. For his part, his colleague Seyni Guédel Mbodj emphasised: “Thanks to the FIFA/CIES Programme, I have become more competitive and efficient, thus more professional. It has also enabled me to broaden my network and increase my friendships.”

The International University Network created in the framework of the FIFA/CIES Programme comprises 14 universities throughout the world.

Deadline for enrolment: 15 August 2011
