“The move proved to be a life-changing decision I will never regret”.
Like for most travelling far to the AISTS MAS in Sport Administration from another land, there was hesitation before I stepped on to my Switzerland-bound flight. However, the move proved to be a life-changing decision I will never regret.
The AISTS MAS in Sport Administration itself was lots of fun and probably the best available option for someone wanting comprehensive understanding of the sports industry. There was a unique mix of sporting know-how and experience from within the student body and an incredibly broad range of topics studied under the direction of industry leaders.
The AISTS MAS in Sport Administration is more than “just a course”. The infrastructure created by Dr Stricker, his team and the AISTS MAS in Sport Administration Scientific Committee presents exciting opportunities for research, contacts and career progression. As it turned out, an introduction from one of the AISTS MAS in Sport Administration professors earned me a research project of immediate importance to Europe’s entire golfing community. This undertaking, combined with the AISTS MAS in Sport Administration qualification and my previous sporting background and experience resulted in a successful application for a management role in one of the world’s premier golf organisations. Six years down the track, and I am now running the organisation as General Secretary.
Having enjoyed a great year and subsequently secured a positive career direction in my chosen sport, I can only recommend the AISTS MAS in Sport Administration experience.
