The Certificate in Sport Management is a face-to-face programme organised by the Institute for PE and Sport (IPES). It is aimed at enhancing and formalising the practical knowledge already acquired by current administrative staff working within sport organisations. The certificate is issued through the University of Malta and is worth thirty ECTS Credits. Each programme comprises seven mandatory modules covering the more pertinent areas of management within a sport organisation including: (i) stakeholder involvement; (ii) strategic and financial management; (iii) sport marketing and sponsorship; (iv) communication, the media and public relations and (v) event and facility management; (vi) Human Resources & Volunteer management and (vii) legal considerations (e.g. disciplinary hearings, rules and regulations, match-fixing and doping issues).

On successful completion of this programme, students should be able to demonstrate an ability to reflect critically on their knowledge of sport management trends.The Certificate is aimed at developing the theoretical and practical knowledge of sport administrators, thus contributing to the diffusion of up-to-date management techniques and best practices among sport associations and their stakeholders (e.g. clubs) and enabling participants to master the knowledge and skills expected of future senior administrators.

Interested applicants may opt to either follow the full course, or to select a minimum of three study-units (these should be taken in the same order as the course programme of studies). This course is spread over two semesters: Semester 1 starts in February and ends in June 2019; semester 2 starts in October 2019 and ends in January 2020.
