Congratulations to all the 112 master’s students from 13 universities from across the globe, who participated in the 2022/2023 edition of the International Olympic Case Study Competition (CSC) on the topic “Environmental Sustainability in the Olympic Movement” for taking on the challenge. The final was held in March in front of an international jury, representing the Olympic Movement and the academic community. Information on the winning teams is available here.
We are also happy to announce that we have now launched the 2023/2024 edition of the programme, on the topic "Elite athletes as ambassadors of International Sports Federations to promote their sport and their values". The details and link for registration have been published on this page.
If you are teaching master’s level students in sports management, sports economics, sports governance, sociology, media and communications or political sciences, check it out. We hope that this programme meets your interest and invite you to share it with your peers.
