Founded by the International Olympic Committee

“The master for people wanting to start or boost their career in sport.”

“As the sport industry grows increasingly larger and more complex, it requires the skills and acumen of a growing number of experts trained in all aspects of sport management, including human, life and engineering sciences.

“The not-for-profit AISTS was established by the IOC and other respected organisations and academic institutions to respond directly to this need.

“AISTS routinely produces highly-trained graduates, many of whom have gone on to play leading roles in the world of sport, and offers leading expertise and technical services to a wide range of key players inside and outside the Olympic Movement,”

Thomas Bach, President of the International Olympic Committee
