The programme was developed in cooperation with highly acclaimed professors and sport management practitioners from across the world. RIOU's faculty includes visiting professors from Russia, the UK, France, Austria, the USA, Canada and Australia.
Classes are held on the University's newly built campus in central Sochi (Ordzhonikidze Street, 11), just minutes from the Black Sea.
The campus meets all modern requirements, including the strict BREEAM green standards. It is fully accessible for people with disabilities.
The course is a programme of further professional training (professional retraining) ((Rosobrnadzor license No. 1734 of December 18, 2012). After successful completion of the programme (60 ECTS credits), students are awarded a Diploma of the Russian International Olympic University in two languages - Russian and English. It is a diploma of professional retraining which confers the additional qualification "Master of Sport Administration".
Classes will start in mid-September 2014 and finish on June 30, 2015. The programme runs for 39 weeks (3 semesters), with each week having five study days. Holidays: end of December – beginning of January, first half of April. Thesis writing: second half of April – mid-June. Thesis defence: last week of June.
The Olympic family has no boundaries, and RIOU's doors are open to people from all over the world. The MSA group of students will be highly international, which is another advantage of the programme.
