Sports, Ethics and Managerial Skills

The course is aimed at all students who practice sports at a competitive level enrolled in the first or second year of one of the Master’s Degree Courses of the Departments of Economics and Finance and Political Science or in the third, fourth or fifth year of the Master’s Degree Course in Single Cycle Law.

The course is completely free and its frequency involves the recognition of University Educational Credits provided for in the curriculum for Other Activities.

The course will be open to students who can demonstrate that they have practiced for at least one full calendar year (from their enrolment in the first year of degree triennial / master’s degree in a single cycle) a sport at a competitive level, the practice of sports can take place both within the Sport Society Amateur LUISS, or outside LUISS.

If the student has carried out the activities outside, it must be his responsibility to obtain the documentation of his sports association, which will be examined by the Head of the LUISS Amateur Sports Society at the end of the enrolment period.

If, on the other hand, you practice sports at a competitive level within the LUISS, we will take care of receiving the information of the LUISS Amateur Sports Club.

The course consists of a part of the seminar that will last 20 hours, organized in 5 meetings of 4 hours, concentrated in the second half of the year.

In order for the University Training Credits to be recognized, it will be necessary to have attended 80% of the total amount of hours, which corresponds to 16 hours, and it will therefore be possible to make a maximum of 4 hours of absence.

There are no English editions.
