The FIFA Master

The FIFA Master - International Master in Management, Law and Humanities of Sport - is organized by the International Centre for Sport Studies (CIES) in partnership with three universities, SDA Bocconi School of Management in Milan (Italy), De Montfort University in Leicester (England), and the University of Neuchâtel (Switzerland). The FIFA Master in Management, Law and Humanities of Sport, established in 2001, was created to promote management education within the sports world. It has grown to become a top graduate program 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 England, Italy and Switzerland, which are among Europe's most sports oriented countries, have come together to provide a one year program 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. Once the program successfully completed, postgraduates receive a joint-diploma delivered by the three universities.

In 2020 the FIFA Master was ranked as the No.1 course in Europe for the 8th time by the SportBusiness International global rankings.
