For that purpose, the network has created one common curriculum of continuing education, the FIFA/CIES Executive Programme in Sports Management, taught at all the partner universities. Moreover, ad hoc seminars and conferences devoted to essential themes for effective sport management are regularly organised in the framework of the FIFA/CIES University Network.
