FIFA Master 15th edition: last month in Milan!

FIFA Master 15th edition at San Siro


It was not with bright eyes or light hearts that we started our last month in Milan!

This was due to a combination of  the brilliant intensity of the module, which transported us through the crucial “need to knows” of the various disciplines of sports management in great depth for such a short time, but also because of the wonderful experience that we have enjoyed in such a great city as Milan - A place rich  in sport, history, culture and entertainment.
