FC Barcelona inaugurated its online training platform
FC Barcelona inaugurated its online training platform, which will give distance courses in conjunction with some of the world’s leading academies, including the Argentine University Siglo 21.
FCB Universitas, Sport Innovation Hub, is the program for the generation and transfer of knowledge and innovation of FC Barcelona.
This portal will include courses on five areas of FCB Universitas knowledge: sports medicine, performance, technology, team sports and social sciences.
This training will be taught through the online channel or in person, depending on the courses or masters that will be offered with the different universities or educational centers that have signed collaboration agreements with the Barca platform.
The first online courses offered through the FCB Universitas portal are organized jointly with the 21st Century University and offer a program of five certificates in the field of sports sciences: high performance sports psychology, sports nutrition, technology and applied science Sport, neuroscience and sports training, and team sports training.
Each of the certificates has four specific courses in each area, with content developed in collaboration with specialists from the Club and professors from the 21st Century University.
These courses will begin in April and will be open to all those who wish, although it is recommended that they have knowledge in the specific field of each course.
The inscriptions are open and can be made directly on the portal. The certificates have a duration of four months and each specific course lasts one month, starting on the 10th of each month.
The courses are taught in three languages - English, Spanish and Portuguese – and the method used is based on a competency learning model.
The portal also offers two sport management and marketing courses supervised by the social sciences area of FCB Universitas and which have been developed in collaboration with the 21st Century University by distinguished professors from different universities in the United States, such as Roger Pielke, University of Colorado; Sean Williams of Clemson University; Philip Dover of Babson College, and marketers such as Marcus Bach, the Miami Dolphins, or James Condo of the FIU Panthers.
The FCB Universitas is one of the pillars of the Strategic Plan of the Club where Lionel Messi plays. With the inauguration of the platform, the program goes a step further in the development of its activities in order to become a global reference in the field of knowledge and innovation in the world of sports.
