UEFA Executive Master for International Players (MIP)

Following the success of the first edition (see video), the second edition of the UEFA Executive Master for International Players (UEFA MIP), developed in partnership with ECA and FIFPro, is now ready to kick off.

This course aims at giving top players the opportunity to transfer their skills from the field into decision-making and leadership roles off it, to ensure that their knowledge and understanding of the game can benefit the football world in the long-term.

The programme is delivered by two top academic institutions: the Centre de Droit et d'Economie du Sport (CDES) University of Limoges (France), and the Birkbeck Sport Business Centre, Birkbeck, University of London. It comprises seven one-week sessions, each of which deals with a different aspect of football administration and management, over a period of 20 months in major European cities as well as in New York.

The launch of the second edition of the UEFA MIP programme has notably been welcomed by former international players who have previously made the transition into positions of administrative management both within clubs and national associations.
