Global Sport Business Master in details
During three semesters and through comprehensive coursework, master classes, and study trips, the students will be confronted with the fast-changing trends in the global sports industry, with a special focus on the creation of technology-based sports companies.
To incorporate students’ knowledge in their professional life, they will undertake a 6-month professional experience and develop a concrete digital transformation plan for a sports organization.
The first semester of the Global Sport Business Master’s program will focus on the economic, political, and legal characteristics of sports management and introduce the future trends of the sports industry in Europe.
To be fully immersed in the sports products’ environment, students will join a 5-day study trip to Munich – Germany – to attend ISPO, the world’s largest multi-segment trade fair for sports business.
The second semester of the Global Sport Business Master’s program focuses on the opportunities for collaboration in Asia and the challenges that such a gigantic market represents to European and American sports organizations. Students will also understand the economic implications when developing successful business strategies in Asia.
During this semester students will initiate the GSIC classes and will learn the fundamentals of the digital transformation area. They will also discover the functioning of sports digital marketing and fan engagement. By the end of the semester, students will be able to propose a real individualized customer experience.
The third semester of the Global Sport Business Master’s program focuses on sports marketing franchises, innovation, and fan experience of the sports industry with an emphasis focus on North America to prepare students to understand this sporting leadership model.
Our courses will help students gain significant knowledge in sales strategies, event safety & public relations, as well as innovative sports trends. They will also learn about the career environments both in the USA and in the UK.
The last semester of this program involves a mandatory 6-month work placement in an international sport industry environment that students must undertake to obtain their degree. AMOS aims to provide opportunities for all students to develop employability skills to achieve their career goals, therefore they are accompanied during classes and professional workshops.
Students will also have to carry out a GSIC final project, by writing a dissertation and supporting their work orally. The project will be based in a real company of the sports industry.

Added value of our establishment by training programme :
- The added value of a school in terms of the employment rate is an indicator that enables a relevant comparison to be made between the employment rate of the school’s leavers and the employment rate of similar schools.Theoretically, the value added can take values between -100 and 100: at the maximum if the observed employment rate is 100% and the expected employment rate is 0%, the value added is equal to 100; and at the minimum if the observed employment rate is 0% and the expected employment rate is 100%, the value added is equal to -100. In reality, these extremes are never reached in InserJeunes: the added values are between 40 and -40 and around 90% of establishments and CFAs have an added value between 12 and -12. Added value rate = – 4 (6-month insertion rate for 2019 graduates at national level)
Training discontinuation rate :
- 4,7% in Master 1 (year 2021-2022 on all AMOS campuses)
