The FIFA Master in Management, Law and Humanities of Sport was recently ranked as the #1 Postgraduate Sport Management course in Europe for a record eleventh time in the new influential 2023 SportBusiness rankings. The FIFA Master combines a truly international and multi-disciplinary approach.

Full Description

Organised by the International Centre for Sports Studies (CIES) in partnership with De Montfort University in Leicester (UK), SDA Bocconi School of Management in Milan (Italy) and the University of Neuchâtel (Switzerland), the FIFA Master in Management, Law and Humanities of Sport was created to promote management education within the sports world. It has grown to become a top graduate programme developing all-round managers who can cope with the increasingly complex world of sport.

The FIFA Master takes its graduates on a unique journey through three different European countries to study sport. Three distinguished universities in the UK, Italy and Switzerland, which are among Europe's most sports oriented countries, have come together to provide a one year programme that combines top-class academic teaching and practical case studies supplemented by guest lecturers and field visits. The course focuses on three key and inter-related aspects of sport humanities, management and law.
