International Basketball Federation (FIBA)

The FIBA Academy is a partnership between the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) and the World Academy of Sport, established in 2008 to deliver world-class academic programmes that are in touch with industry trends and developments, for administrators, event organisers, former athletes and other members in the basketball business.

In September 2011, the FIBA Academy Manager's Programme was launched. This is a unique basketball specific online learning initiative targeted at improving the administrative efficiency of FIBA's member National Federations, basketball clubs, current and future leaders within the wider basketball community. 

Through the FIBA Academy, current and potential leaders within the business of basketball have also benefitted from attending our intensive residential executive education programmes that cover topics such as: High Performance Pathways, International Event Management and Sports Federation Management. 

Modules from our executive series have also been tailored and delivered successfully as bespoke education programmes for the FIBA member National Federations on the occasion of the FIBA Congress.

The Postgraduate Certificate in Sport Management, delivered in partnership with the Royal Holloway, University of London (RHUL) is also available for students, professional basketball players and those wishing to gain entry into basketball management.
