CERTIFICATE

Barça Innovation Hub - Universitas

The Certificate in Advanced Sports Nutrition is the most advanced sports nutrition course available relevant to team sports. It provides the latest science but also the application -from theory to recipes- put together by Asker Jeukendrup, leader in the field from an academic point of view, who has published over 200 papers but in addition has worked as a practitioner for many years.

This Certificate is a combination of cutting edge knowledge and years of experience working at the highest level in sport. The FCB DNA comes in when we add in each topic an example of how we at FCB do find solutions for these issues.

The Certificate in Advanced Sports Nutrition will give clear guidelines, but do not expect a cookie-cutter approach where you get one solution you can use to solve all problems. You will learn to think to come up with specific solutions for specific situations.
