Students learn from sport industry leaders

Game Experience Programme provides a wealth of knowledge to the sports industry

Throughout the Tokyo Olympics, course partners, the World Academy of Sport, have actively engaged in creating and running the Game Experience Programme.

The Game Experience Programme (or GEP) provides representatives from future host cities of the games to come together and learn about the areas impacting the coordination, management and running of major sports events such as the Olympic Games. Fundamentally, the GEP allows sports professionals to upskill by learning from its industry experts.

This year, the GEP included informative sessions on sustainability, press operations, security, technology and uniforms, to name a few.

But what does this mean for International Sports Students? It means that our global, online classroom allows our students access to the same knowledge pool that senior management of global sporting bodies have through the GEP. Therefore, through learning from the industry key influential figures, ISM students can acquire hard and soft skills, networking, and tips and tricks to thrive in the industry.
