Apply to the FIFA Master


The FIFA Master seeks to attract a diverse profile of applicants, those who exhibit a variety of skills and accomplishments.  This is in contrast to some courses which target one standard candidate profile.  In order to create the most stimulating environment possible for all postgraduates, we consciously select a complementary student body, one that not only reflects a variety of backgrounds, cultures, and nationalities, but a wide range of personal interests and professional ambitions.

The common characteristics of our postgraduates are demonstrated by leadership potential and a capacity to thrive in a rigorous academic environment.  All prospective candidates must:

  • Have completed a full course of university study – this can be in any discipline and may vary from three to four years depending on the country of study – and successfully obtained a degree by the application date;
  • Have an excellent command of English, written, spoken and comprehension – the course is taught exclusively in English and the Final Project must be written in English (Toefel minimum score of 100);
  • Have professional experience (minimum recommended of one year);
  • Have an international outlook;
  • Be able to demonstrate an active level of involvement/interest in sport (not just as a participant but in the administration/management of sport);
  • Be motivated and determined to succeed;
  • Be flexible and able to meet the challenges of the course;
  • Have an extensive general knowledge and culture - GMAT is highly recommended but no minimum score is required (as of 2018-2019 taking the GMAT will be required for applying);
  • Be able to work in a group (group work is a key part of the course).

Failure to fulfil any of the above criteria will mean that your application will not be taken into consideration.



The application deadline for the 18th Edition (2017-2018) of the FIFA Master is now over.

Submitted applications will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee. The selection process will take around 3-4 months.
Applications for the 18th Edition of the FIFA Master will no longer be accepted under any circumstances.
For those of you who would like to apply in the future, the online application form for the next edition of the FIFA Master (19th edition) will be available as of October 2017.
Many thanks for your interest in our course.
Yours in sport,
The FIFA Master Team
