Costa Rica: Registration for the 7th UCR/FIFA/CIES Programme

The University of Costa Rica (UCR), a CIES academic partner, had launched the registration process for the 7th edition of the UCR/FIFA/CIES Programme in sport management (Curso de Técnico en gestión deportiva). This mixed curriculum - with courses taught in the classroom and online sessions - is open to all Spanish-speaking countries in Central America. The next edition will start in February 2015.

For the third year running, UCR will offer the courses making up the FIFA/CIES Programme in sport management in a format allowing students from Spanish-speaking countries in Central America to follow a great deal of the curriculum from home. Students will meet for two classroom sessions in February and in September 2015 in Costa Rica. The rest of the time, they will take part in the different online classes managed by the module heads (marketing/sponsorship, law, management, event management, finance and communication) specially trained by the University.

The success of this format has been confirmed over the years, as confirmed by Jorge Mario Véliz, a student from Guatemala (2014): « Participating in the UCR/FIFA/CIES Programme (Curso de Técnico en gestión deportiva) was really an enriching and stimulating experience both from an academic and from a personal viewpoint. (…) Attending a significant part of the courses remotely was profitable. I will be able to apply the knowledge acquired with success in my line of work in Guatemala, namely management of professional football. »

Registration deadline:

5 January 2015
