The Northwestern University of Qatar is offering scholarships to Qatari nationals and long-term residents after receiving full accreditation from the Ministry of Education and Higher Education. The scholarships will provide all funding for the Northwestern Masters in Sports Administration program.
The programme is being offered through the School of Professional Studies in partnership with Northwestern home campus. It offers courses ranging from sports marketing to law and management, with the option of specialising in Global Sports Communication.
“We are thrilled to receive this accreditation and support from the Qatar Foundation and the Ministry of Education and Higher Education as we work together to develop the knowledge and mastery that Qatar needs to achieve its future vision,” said Jairo Lugo-Ocando, Director of Executive and Graduate Education.
Lugo-Ocando pointed out that sports is one of the largest economic enterprises in the world, and employs professionals with a variety of business skills and specializations who have one common interest–the business of sports. “The interest in the business of sports is particularly prevalent in Qatar,” he noted, “and this industry already offers a wide range of challenging career options and opportunities. This program will enhance the career prospects for anyone interested in pursuing a career in the sports industry.”
Classes in the program are taught by faculty members who share their insights and practical knowledge based on extensive professional experience in sports. The program offers access to team executives and professionals in areas such as operations, marketing, and sponsorship in a wide range of sports and sports-related environments.
“The Northwest master’s programme is a sports administration that is curated to meet the realities and demands of this nation as it prepares to host world-class sports tournaments and develop a knowledge-based economy,” Lugo-Ocando said.
The requirements for the degree are offered in a blended form , allowing students to enroll in a combination of online and in-person classes. The evening sessions are also scheduled to allow flexibility for working professionals.
