Interview with

Saria Omar | graduate 2016

Why did you choose to attend the FIFA/CIES Programme in Sport Management at Birzeit University?
- An international programme
- Graduation Project and the opportunity to compete in the FIFA/CIES Network Prize
- Birzeit University is a reliable institution
What were your expectations before the start of the course? and… were they met?
My expectations were to:
- Enrich my knowledge and my experience,
- Win the Final Project at Palestine level,
- Win the overall FIFA/CIES Network Prize.
The first and second predictions have been 100% met ... we are waiting to see about the third one :)
What would you say are the key strengths of the FIFA/CIES Programme in Sport Management?
The FIFA/CIES Executive Programme felt like part of an international success story! Being part of something FIFA leads is amazing! In addition, the sessions provided by lecturers from outside of Palestine were really very powerful and effective.
What benefits (on a personal and/or professional level) did you gain from attending the course?
I gained a much better understanding of management! I now use the benefits I gained on a daily basis as I am studying for a Master degree in strategic planning and fundraising.
What is your best memory/highlight of the course?
When the CIES representative announced that our project had won the prize at the Palestine level.
Would you recommend the FIFA/CIES Programme in Sport Management? Why?
I would highly recommend it because, as I said, it is an international programme, which includes a great chance to compete for the overall FIFA/CIES Network Prize.
