To promote management education within the sports world, the FIFA Master was created by FIFA (Fédération Internationale de Football Association) and organized by the International Centre for Sport Studies (CIES). It has now become the best graduate programme, which helps form all-round managers who can cope with the complex world of sport. The one-year course is carried out through three different European countries.

This course offers students a chance to meet with top managers from clubs, federations and associations. This makes students a part of the network of highly relevant contacts. Graduates from the course become members of the FIFA Master Alumni Association, which means they will remain in touch with important stakeholders in sport.

Hi Deepak, jobs which requires you to demonstrate leadership and managerial traits, negotiating qualities etc are good. There is no specific job which is preferred. It is how you demonstrate your qualities fit for the role and program.

What type of professional experience required? Does it involve experience in sports based companies only or any company experience?
