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 six-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 common feature of the football environment is complexity and constant change, which results in a need for lifelong learning and raising the level of knowledge in all areas. Financial aspects are certainly among the most important. The UEFA FMCC is an excellent course at the highest level, with content by proven experts who guide you from the basics to in-depth theoretical content through practical examples. In a friendly environment with endless opportunities for networking, this course provided me with a wealth of knowledge. I can highly recommend it to every top manager in national associations."
