WHAT IS MAISI

The MAiSI is a full time two year Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree in Sports Ethics and Integrity. Innovative and multidisciplinary, the programme is a catalyst for a profession that has been lacking within the sports administration sector. Concentrating on the development of ethical sports cultures and structures, and the development of tools for sports integrity education and compliance, MAiSI is delivered by six prestigious universities in Europe and the UK.

MAiSI is based on strong theoretical foundations and the development of core competencies needed to develop sports integrity expertise. Scholars are equipped to identify ethical issues, engage in critical ethical thinking, and translate decisions into ethical actions at the highest level of sports governance and administration.
