International Academy of Sports Science and Technology
AISTS: Thinking beyond the score
The International Academy of Sports Science and Technology AISTS (Académie Internationale des Sciences et Techniques du Sport) serves as a worldwide centre of excellence in sport management in Lausanne, the Olympic Capital.
Founded in 2000 by the International Olympic Committee, leading Swiss universities, IMD Business School as well as the City of Lausanne and the State of Vaud, the AISTS taps into a unique network of sport management expertise.
A 360° vision that takes all aspects of sport into consideration is vital for sport managers to act responsibly, effectively and ensure the sustainable development of their organisation. The AISTS takes not only commercial, economic, sociological and legal aspects into account but also integrates sport technology and medicine to meet modern challenges in sports business.
The academy’s activities are built on three pillars:
- Postgraduate education
- Continuing education
The main service offered by the academy is its internationally recognised Master of Advanced Studies in Sport Administration and Technology (MSA); a one year postgraduate master’s programme training the future sport executives.
In addition, continuing education seminars for the international sports world are organised under the lead of the academy including the “Sport Management Seminar for Women”, the “Sport Event Management and Organisation Seminar” (SEMOS), and the “Sustainable Design in Sport Forum”.
Through independent and mandated research projects the academy, together with its founding members, retains and builds state of the art knowledge in all aspects of sport management.
