Mandela/FIFA/CIES Executive Programme in Sport Management

The increased diversity and commercialization of sport has produced a demand for professionally-educated managers. Thus, the CIES International University Network was jointly founded by FIFA and CIES in order to set up a unique international university network offering a certificate qualification in sport management.

Currently the CIES/FIFA Executive Programme in Sport Management is offered in 15 countries across the globe, namely in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Egypt, Lebanon, Palestine, Peru, Senegal, South Africa (NMMU), Spain, Trinidad & Tobago, United Arab Emirates and Venezuela, it is taught in the local language of the partner universities (French, English, Turkish, Arabic and Venezuela). All these universities are part of CIES International University Network by virtue of an academic partnership agreement with the CIES to offer the CIES/FIFA Executive Programme in Sport Management.
