Bahrain Olympic Committee (BOC) international affairs director Fajer Jassim will be attending the second chapter of the International Academy of Sports Science and Technology’s (AISTS) Master of Sports Administration (MSA) in Serbia.
Fajer had already completed the first chapter of the programme held in Lausanne, in Switzerland in September 2015. After her trip to Serbia, Fajer will then fly back to Lausanne and then Canada for the third and fourth chapters of the programme.
The sole Bahraini participant in the programme is required to fullfill at least 8 weeks of full time work experience in the sport industry as well as submit their research paper as part of the degree requirements.
The AISTS was founded in 2000 by the International Olympic Committee and leading Swiss institutions and universities.
A not-for-profit foundation, the AISTS is committed to professionalizing sports management through continuing education, applied research and an engaging platform for industry connections.
The AISTS’s flagship programme is the 14-month postgraduate Master of Sports Administration (MSA) – educating aspiring sport managers from all over the world since 2003.
Each year, the AISTS brings together over 140 international sports experts in the sciences of Management, Technology, Law, Medicine, and Sociology – all in the efforts of building a better world through sport.
Graduates go on to pursue careers with sports organisations, such as the International Olympic Committee, international sports federations, and sport agencies.
