News from the CEV
Luxembourg, April 16, 2014. In an effort to provide decision-makers of the Volleyball family with a first-class training programme, the CEV has joined forces with all other members of the European Team Sports Association (EHF, FIBA Europe, FIRA-AER, IIHF, and UEFA) and with world-renowned academic partners to set up the Master Programme in European Sport Governance (MESGO).
The third edition of the Master Programme will get started in September 2014; enrolment is open now and applications shall be submitted by April 25 (new deadline) at the latest.
“The MESGO is a unique course in which the key stakeholders in European sport come together to analyse the features of its specific model, understand the main challenges it faces and discuss regulatory measures that could be put in place to ensure its future prosperity,” says CEV President André Meyer. “We invite as many as possible to enrol in order to help us raise the management of Volleyball and Beach Volleyball to the next level and make sure our organisations continue to evolve with the times.”
The academic partners contributing to this programme include Sciences Po (Paris), one of the world’s leading research universities, the Birkbeck Sports Business Centre of the London University, the Centre de Droit et d’Economie du Sport – University of Limoges (France), the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz (Germany), as well as the National Institute of Physical Education of Catalunya – Lleida University (Spain).
The main goal of the MESGO programme is to provide students with an understanding of the institutional and economic environment of European and international sport, with a focus on sports governance, international sports organisations and also on the peculiarities of the European model.
Classes will get started in late September 2014 and continue through early March 2016, with the graduation ceremony set to take place at the UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland on March 31-April 1, 2016.
