The International Master in Management, Law and Humanities of Sport - a one-year postgraduate sports course known as the Fifa Master's and endorsed by Fifa - is preparing to welcome applicants for the eighth year in 2007/08.

The application deadline has been set for February 28 next year.

Since October 2000, Fifa, CIES (International Centre for Sports Studies), and the three-partner universities, De Montfort University (Leicester, United Kingdom), SDA Bocconi School of Management (Milan, Italy) and the Université de Neuchâtel (Neuchâtel, Switzerland), have been collaborating to offer this unique postgraduate degree, taught on three different European campuses.

Through a well-balanced programme, covering the humanities of sport (ethics, history, sociology), sports management (strategy, marketing, finance, organisation) and sports law (sport and health, sports business and law, methods of dispute resolution, status of the sportsperson), the Fifa Master's aims to provide the right skills, knowledge and understanding of the key issues that sport is facing today and in the future.
