Educating future global sport leaders and global citizens
The Global Master’s Programme Sport for Development programme 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.
The Utrecht University programme in February will offer a variety of lectures on relevant themes, practical skills labs such as intercultural communication, field visits to several sport organizations and a number of reflection workshops.
Johannesburg, Tsukuba and Utrecht
USG is proud of this unique honours programme together with the University of Tsukuba and the University of Johannesburg and is looking forward to an inspiring first month in Utrecht. The programme is a collaboration of the University van Johannesburg, the University of Tsukuba and Utrecht University – as part of the alliance with TU/e and UMCU. The students are participating in a master’s programme in South-Africa, Japan and the Netherlands (the Utrecht University Master’s programme Sportmanagement and Sportpolicy). The programme consists of three four-week country visits, of which this course in Utrecht (in February) is the first one. After that, the students will follow a course in Japan (July/August 2018) and South Africa (February/March 2019).
