UEFA Financial Management compact course

This programme provides a foundation for all national association executives wanting to take more informed financial decisions

Programme overview

This five-day advanced compact course is composed of three online seminars on topics such as governance, strategic planning and auditing.

Before the course, participants are required to take the UEFA Grow Finance Essentials webinars.

Although central to all organisations, finance is often seen as extremely complex and is therefore left up to the experts. However, when you are able to see the facts behind the figures, you have the power to build stronger strategies, expand your influence, and make better decisions to help your organisation grow.

The programme is founded on applied knowledge involving case studies from national associations. To help you apply the course content to your own working environment, you will be asked to undertake short assignments before and during the course using your association’s financial data. On completing this compact course, you will have the tools to positively impact the future of your association.

"The UEFA Grow Finance Essentials webinars offered a good overview of statutory report, funding strategy, budgeting and forecasting while looking at the big issues we face today in financial management. This new course is a great platform to go deeper into these topics to build even more financially stable national associations. It is also extremely good to see how other NA´s approach their financial management and reporting." Borghildur Sigurðardóttir, Vice-President Icelandic Football Association
