Josoor Institute

The first FIFA World Cup™ in the Middle East is shaping the region's future. Education and research are just a couple of the areas where our legacy planning is already inspiring vital development and new ways of thinking.

Through education, we are energising sectors that will contribute to more diversified, forward-looking economies across the region.

Josoor Institute is a centre of excellence for sports and events management. It was designed by the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) to develop professionals and volunteers who will directly contribute to the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ and, in the long term, work in the growing sector of sports and events in Qatar and the region.

The institute’s flagship programme is its Sport Management and Major Events Management diploma, delivered in partnership with leading business school SDA Bocconi. Already, some 240 people have graduated from the course.

Josoor Institute is also very active in the online space, offering regular masterclasses and bespoke webinars. It also directly contributed to the creation of an open online course, Sustainability and Major Sport Events, in partnership with Hamad Bin Khalifa University.

Since its launch in 2013, Josoor Institute has delivered education and training to over 4,000 people, in collaboration with 450 guest speakers.

Josoor Institute’s educational programmes raise awareness about how major sports events are delivered, offering students and professionals an unprecedented opportunity to learn about the innovation and national coordination required to host the FIFA World Cup™. The lessons learned will be applied to other projects in sports and events – and will give graduates a distinct advantage in their futures.
