Beacon of academic excellence in sport management
Over the years, thanks to the presence of the IOC and numerous international sport federations, Lausanne has become the administrative capital of sport. This status is underpinned by opportunities to pursue high-quality academic studies in the field of sport management since 1995.
Starting out with a certificate, in person or online, it is possible to reach master’s level, or even to do a doctorate, all via programmes that cooperate at international level most of the time.
Lausanne is thus a true beacon of academic expertise in the field of sport management. In this section you will find the different institutions providing courses of training in this field.
