Certificate Courses

Our certificate courses integrate theories into practical applications (e.g. case studies, presentations and discussions) enabling a rich exchange of ideas and experiences. The modules are taught in English by academics and professionals from different sport organisations including the IOC, various International Federations and sport agencies.



Participants of the AISTS Short programmes are professional, part-time or volunteer managers of international sports organisations, organisers of events or people from outside the sport industry wanting to get a holistic understanding of specific sport related topics.


The AISTS Certificate courses take place in Lausanne, Switzerland as well as travelling around the world through our tailored educational programmes.


Online students will have the opportunity to attend live synchronous classes, access the curriculum and submit assignments through the Learning Management System from their respective locations.


Hybrid courses are delivered both in person and online simultaneously.

Do upcoming Olympic Games draw a number of applicants greater than average?

Given that a good number of international competitions take place every year (Summer & Winter Olympics, Summer & Winter Youth Olympics, Commonwealth Games, Football World Cups, World Championships organised by all international federation, etc.) there is a constant interest in sport enthusiasts in taking part in the AISTS MAS in Sport Management & Technology with a view of joining the organising committees for these events.

Does the programme equip its graduates to work internationally?

The AISTS MAS in Sport Management & Technology is an international postgraduate program that equips with the necessary skills to find work in an international sports organisation (as well as in more local organisations) so participants are absolutely equipped to work internationally. Many of our graduates stay in Lausanne as it is the Olympic Capital and therefore many (over 50) international sports governing bodies are based in the city and region, but some of them also return to their country or go abroad. For example, we had numerous Brazilian graduates work at the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games, as well as numerous Korean graduates working for the organising committee of the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games.
