Founded in 2000 by the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) and the International Centre for Sports Studies (CIES) in Neuchâtel, the FIFA Master - International Master In Management, Law and Humanities of Sport is a postgraduate course dedicated to all sports (and not only football), which now serves as a benchmark for the training of sports administrators. Indeed, the FIFA Master programme was earlier this year ranked as the leading postgraduate sports management course in the world by "SportBusiness International” magazine after having previously been named as the leading course in Europe by the same ranking in both 2012 and 2013.

During the first fourteen editions of the programme, more than 380 graduates from over 80 countries have attended the one-year university course which is jointly delivered by De Montfort University in Leicester (England), SDA Bocconi School of Management in Milan (Italy) and the University of Neuchâtel (Switzerland).Today, more than 90% of the course graduates are working in the sports industry for organisations that include but are not limited to FIFA, the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the Fédération Internationale de Basketball (FIBA), the Fédération Internationale de Ski (FIS), the Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI), adidas, Infront, IMG and Sauber Formula 1 Team.

The programme will finish with the presentation of postgraduate research projects which you are cordially invited to attend, and will be held on Thursday 16th July 2015 in Neuchâtel, Switzerland. The conference provides an opportunity to see our postgraduates in action, as well as to hear more about the contributions they have made to the sports industry this year through their research projects.
