Sports Event Management
The course draws on the best world practice in organising events at Olympic venues. With the help of distinguished Russian and international academics and practitioners, participants improve their networking skills, develop a better understanding of sport specific operational activities, and learn how to distribute spectator flows or manage ticket sales. Classes are held both on campus and at the Sochi 2014 Olympic venues, allowing course members to immerse themselves in the operations behind large sporting events. By meeting top managers of ice rinks and alpine skiing venues and analysing real-life cases, participants familiarise themselves with leading-edge practice in managing high-profile sports events.
