About the FIFA/CIES University Network
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. Moreover, ad hoc seminars and conferences devoted to essential themes for effective sport management are regularly organised in the framework of the FIFA/CIES University Network.
