The MAiSI is a two year Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree in Sports Ethics and Integrity and is an innovative multidisciplinary programme that will be a catalyst for a new profession within sports administration. It brings together high level scholars in a consortium of Higher Education Institutions with a focus on vocationally orientated concerns. MAiSI will equip students for high-level careers in sports administration and governance, concentrating on the development of stronger ethical sports cultures, and developing tools for sports integrity and compliance. Students will receive training that enables them to identify ethical issues, engage in ethical thinking, and translate decisions into ethical actions – the core skills required to develop sports integrity. Semester 1 comprises advanced study of sports ethics, ethical theory, and sports policy, including anti doping, illegal gambling and match fixing at Swansea University. Semester 2 focuses on the experience of sport as a social practice in relation to athlete welfare, child protection and safegaurding, equality, integrity and fair play across able bodied and Paralympic sport delivered by staff from Charles University in Prague, and Katholieke Universiteit, Leuven.

A summer school is hosted by the International Olympic Academy, in Ancient Olympia, where students from both years mix to form a Sport Integrity network community, where common themes and interests are pursued. In Semester 3 the MAiSI focuses on organisational issues of sports ethics and integrity focusing on economic, legal and managerial aspects and instruments for the good governance of sport with faculty from Johannes Gutenberg Universitat, Mainz, and Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona.
