The course targets employees of National Olympic Committees, sports federations, clubs, marketing agencies and various sports industry businesses.

Students study the following modules: Economics of Sport and the Olympics; Governance, Policy and the Olympic Movement; Research Paradigms in Sports Management; Business of Sport and the Olympics; Sports Marketing and Communications. The course comprises 39 weeks (3 semesters) and culminates in a graduate qualification paper (thesis).
The MSA curriculum utilizes both classical and innovative educational models, including traditional lectures and seminars, case studies, interactive classes, cascade training, master classes by sports celebrities and other teaching formats found in business schools.
