Welcome to the first GED, a world class Tactical Periodisation® course!

Get ready for a truly exceptional and groundbreaking experience with our prestigious I Global Executive Diploma course.

The Global Executive Diploma in Tactical Periodisation® is a programme developed under an agreement between Vítor Frade’s Tactical Periodisation and prestigious training institutions worldwide, namely the Victoria University in Australia, the Hamburg Football Association and the Medical School of Hamburg in Germany and with an university and professional soccer team in California US (to be presented soon).

Join us for the first-ever edition dedicated to the implementation and utilization of Tactical Periodisation Methodology.

This is a 4-month course, in b-learning format: online classes and face-to-face part. In the end of this path you will have one month to deliver your individual final project essay.

This Course is, thus, a “mini Professional Master” in Tactical Periodisation®, as its format is similar to the Professional Master with less duration and depth on the methodology.

The Global Executive Diploma is, therefore, a fundamental training to understand Tactical Periodisation® in its theoretical and practical aspects. A Professional Certification will be issued by the Official School.
