Ethics and Integrity is becoming a major growth area in employability within sports organizations. This is partly because the relative autonomy of sports organizations (what some have called in the legal context “the specificity of sports”) now imposes fresh obligations towards greater transparency, accountability, and ethical governance. Currently, sports organizations need to evidence compliance with increasing legal and ethical requirements, as well as corporate social responsibility norms, and this requires the employment of qualified professionals in these areas.
The study program produces graduates who will be capable of assuming the role of Sports Ethics and Integrity officials in local, national and international sports organizations.
The study program MA in Sports Ethics and Integrity has been designed by a consortium that has wide industry/stakeholder links including National Anti-Doping Organizations, World Anti-Doping Agency, national sports federations, international sports federations, and the European Program for Adapted Physical Activity, International Centre for Sports Security, International Paralympic Committee. The cooperating partners have liaised with a variety of these bodies to discuss relevance and focus. They are already fulfilling important roles in stakeholder organizations, and they will make a significant contribution to students’ awareness of the practicalities of implementation.
