Only five weeks remaining to apply for the 20th edition of the FIFA Master course

If you do not want to miss the unique opportunity to join the 20th edition (2019-2020) of the award winning FIFA Master course organized by the International Centre for Sports Studies (CIES), you have only a few weeks to submit your completed application before the deadline closes on 11th January 2019.

Organised by the International Centre for Sport Studies (CIES) in partnership with De Montfort University in Leicester (England), SDA Bocconi School of Management in Milan (Italy) and the University of Neuchâtel (Switzerland), the International MA in Management, Law and Humanities of Sport - the FIFA Master was created to provide management education to the world of sport.

Former course Patrons have included Sir Bobby Charlton, Lord Sebastian Coe, Alexander Popov, Nawal El Moutawakel, Jonathan Edwards CBE, Christian Karembeu and Francois Pienaar.

With over 90% of our 500 FIFA Master course graduates now working in the global sports industry, the impact of the programme reaches across all continents and nations. For example, our alumni are currently working for organisations as diverse as, but not limited to, the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), International Olympic Committee (IOC), Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI), Union des Associations Européennes de Football (UEFA), Asian Football Confederation (AFC), Federazione Italiana Giuoco Calcio (FIGC), National Basketball Association (NBA), Adidas, Mercedes-AMG F1, FC Juventus, FC Barcelona and Manchester City FC.

Since it was first established, the FIFA Master has received numerous awards and is the first and only course to have ever achieved the landmark of being named the top course in Europe on six separate occasions (2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2017 and 2018) by the Sport Business International independent course rankings. 

How to apply? Create an account using the dedicated online course application platform at:  https://www.cies-fifamaster-application.ch/.
