I am happy to announce, that I will conduct again the Summer School at the University of Europe for Applied Science in Berlin in 2021 - this time online.
As we had - due to the covid19 pandemic - to cancel all personal lectures in the summer of 2020, we will have the Summer School 2021 as a digital Summer School !
The Summer School 2021 lays the first foundations for a successful career as a manager in international sports institutions or companies of international sports products. It conveys knowledge and skills in basic areas of international sports management and links these with a first overview from a sports science and sports economics perspective.
The one-week digital course sensitizes students to the challenges of working at the interface between business administration and sports.
The course highlights the special structures of sports management, environmental conditions, economic and legal frameworks, basic business functions and processes in sports management. Special areas of conflict in sports management are examined as examples and finally the international dimension of sports management is elaborated.
The University of Europe for Applied Sciences educates the decision-makers of tomorrow in the fields of: Art & Design, Business, Sports, Media & Event. The synergy of creativity, entrepreneurial digital thinking, and internationality enriches the faculties and leads to new perspectives in teaching and research, meeting the needs of the job market in the 4.0 era.
International Sports & Event Management (ISEM)
The course consists of 30 contact hours and is equivalent to 3 credit points (ECTS). Participants can expect 10 to 15 hours per week and classes might not take place every day. When you are not in class, you can work on your project, deepen your knowledge in a specific area or prepare yourself for the next lesson. Participants receive an Online Summer Certificate including their grades after taking part in the course. The Sport Management and Photography program run for 2 weeks each. The Digital Marketing program spans over 3 weeks.
The course is taught in English and suitable to all who are interested in the topic of sports & event management. No level of experience is required. However, I strongly recommend that participants have a B2 (upper intermediate) level of English to be able to follow classes and get the most out of them. In order to attend the online courses, you need a computer that is compatible with MS Office (MS TEAMS), constant access to the internet as well as a webcam.
Our Sport Management course is taught by Ralf Iwan, who has been working in international sports for more than 20 years and knows the industry from almost all kind of views: he has worked as a coach and project manager for sport development projects in Qatar, South Africa, Singapore, UK, Honduras, Lebanon and Kazakhstan. In 2016 Ralf started his consulting business 2K+ Management, where he advises sport federations, clubs, government agencies and NGOs in strategy, organisational development, project management and recruitment.
Participants will receive a Certificate of Completion and their final work of the course will be graded. On a competitive job market, it is important to stand out by showing additional expertise, interest and commitment. Taking part in the Online Summer School provides you with the opportunity to learn, and gain a certificate from an International University based in Germany. Build up your knowledge and give your CV the edge!
The University of Applied Sciences Europe awards 3 credit points (ECTS) for this course, that might be accepted towards your degree at your home institution.
At the end of the course, you will receive a Certificate of Completion as well as a transcript. If you are interested please register direct at the University for Applied Sciences Europe.
Kurse an Hochschulen, Bücher und die Summer School Berlin
Hochsommerliche Temperaturen in Berlin! In den letzten Wochen und Monaten habe ich gemeinsam mit meinen Autorenkollegen Jan Treuholz, Mark Sandmann unser gemeinsames Buchprojekt "Athletiktraining Rugby" fertiggestellt! Dazu noch ein weiteres Buchprojekt, das vor dem diesjährigen Rugby World Cup bei Meyer&Meyer veröffentlicht wird. Nun ist es Zeit den Schreibtisch bzw. den Laptop zu verlassen und den Sommer und die kommenden Aktivitäten zu genießen. Denn Berlin ist gerade im Sommer Anziehungspunkt für Menschen aus der ganzen Welt, die sich für Kultur, Clubs, Geschichte, Unterhaltung und Sport interessieren. Darum freue ich mich, das ich zur 2.Sportmanagement Summe School der University for Applied Science Europe auch dieses Jahr wieder ein internationales Teilnehmerfeld aus sechs Nationen begrüßen darf. Zwei Wochen lang biete ich wieder einen praxisorientierten Einstieg in das Sport- und Eventmanagement und bei zahlreichen Exkursionen bekommen die Studierenden auch gleich einen Einblick in die Praxis. Vorher geht es allerdings noch an den Hochschulen in Berlin und Treuchtlingen um Führung, Qualitätsmanagement, Organisation im Sport. Im August dann die FINALS 2019 in Berlin und die Veranstaltung des Berliner Rugby Verbands im Rahmen des LSB Familiensportfests. Es wird also wieder ein ereignisreicher Sommer ... .

A great event this summer was the international Summer School of the University of Applied Science Europe, conducted by me with students from Mexico, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Peru and Germany.
Students are having a long summer break? Not at all ! At least not the student who participated in years International Summer School for Sport- and Event Management which was organised by the University for applied Science Europe in Berlin.
During the 14-day summer school, during which students were credited with 6CETS for their studies, new and very practical insights into the world of sports and event management were gained. In addition to the theoretical foundations, practical examples and own project work in sports management were on the program of the participants. In addition to the Business Model Canvas - applied to the sports industry - the contents of this summer school included international strategies in sport (including the example of rugby and the football World Cup 2022 in Qatar), leadership and law. From the university, there were a total of six excursions to sports clubs and events in Berlin and Hamburg (including FC St Pauli, Alba Berlin and Eisbären Berlin). Here, the students were able to deepen the theoretical content imparted at the university in discussions and discussions with local experts. An important tool of the group work and the excursions was the edubreakSPORTCAMPUS, a digital learning environment that not only served for the general exchange of learning materials. Based on the social video learning concept, the students had the task to record daily small videos and reflections, to upload to the campus and to comment on videos of the other participants. It was an intensive two weeks, during which the students learned a lot of new things, made contacts and made friends. In the coming year 2019, the Summer School of the University of Applied Science will again take place in Berlin and probably Iserlohn and Hamburg. After the great success of this year’s event, the planning for Summer School 2019 is already on the way. Students who are interested to spent the Summer in one of the most vibrent cities in the world and upskill their knowledge in Sport- and Event Management can contact me direct via this webpage.
