FIFA/CIES Executive Programme
Another feather was added to PIMSR’s cap when we started the FIFA/CIES Executive Programme in 2018. FIFA/CIES International University Network was founded in 2004. It brings together universities from all over the world. Its key objective, with the support of its academic partners, is to improve the skills of sports managers at the level of federations, clubs, small sports associations, government and municipal entities.
For that purpose, the network has created one common curriculum of continuing education, the FIFA/CIES Executive Programme in Sports Management, taught at all the partner universities. The objectives of this sports management programme is to give students a comprehensive view of sports management, to organise each year a cycle of special sessions which are delivered by international sports industry experts and to build a network of expertise at both national and international levels.
