*The Global Master’s Programme

The Global Master’s Programme is conducted by three universities: Utrecht University,University of Johannesburg and University of Tsukuba.

The Global Master’s Programme ‘Sport for Development’ aims at educating the future global sport leaders and global citizens, who can give way to the contribution of (international) sport organizations to societal transformation, from a critical and practical perspective. Not only through knowledge about the local, regional and global social issues, knowledge about the meaning of sport in various contexts, knowledge about governance and management of (international) sport organizations but also with academic, leadership and management skills.

Each participating university offers a ‘country visit’: which will consist of an intense four-week programme at their university. They provide lectures and classes on signature topics, where each university offers a unique topic regarding sport for development.
