AISTS Client Team Projects run from the mid November until the end of June and are performed by groups of 3 - 5 participants on a real topic for a real client.
These projects cover a wide range of topics, for example marketing, communications, social media, business strategy, development, event management, sustainability, sport for all and CSR (corporate social responsibility).
The goal of AISTS MAS in Sport Administration Team Projects is to provide a low cost, high quality project resource to sport organisations by proposing new ideas and feasible solutions that are relevant in a practical context.
The project fee is set at CHF 4’500 excluding VAT and project related expenses. Project related expenses must be submitted by the project team to the client and approval must be obtained before any expenses are incurred.
Size of the Teams
Project teams are limited from between 3 to 5 participants. The composition of the groups is formed by the AISTS based on the participants’ skills, experience, interests, and with the objective of achieving balance and diversity across all project groups.

Oral presentation to the AISTS MAS in Sport Administration Scientific Committee and to the client. Presentations are open to the public but can be closed on the client’s request.
The final written report is a 15 – 25 page document (excluding appendices) written in English. In case the final report is requested in French, then an additional 8 page minimum report will be submitted in English. The costs of the printed reports are to be agreed upon and covered by the client.
Each group will present its report orally to the Client and the AISTS MAS in Sport Administration Scientific Committee. The presentation will be open to public but can be closed on the client’s request.
The evaluation of the team project is done by members of the AISTS MAS in Sport Administration Scientific Committee on the basis of the written report, the oral presentation and the feedback from the client (i.e. customer satisfaction).
