About Erasmus Mundus Joint Master of Arts in Sports Ethics and Integrity at KU Leuven

What is the programme all about?

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 three core skills required to develop sports integrity.

It brings together high level scholars in a consortium of Higher Education Institutions with a focus on vocationally orientated concerns.


  • Semester 1 comprises advanced study of sports ethics, ethical theory, and sports policy and practice, including anti doping, illegal gambling and match fixing at SU.
  • Semester 2 focuses on the experience of sport as a social practice in terms of values and norms such as athlete welfare, child protection and safeguarding, equality, integrity and fair play across abled bodied and Paralympic sport delivered by staff from CUNI and KUL. Students also gain research methods knowledge and competences, and will gain a sophisticated appreciation of Olympic and Paralympic philosophy, ethics and organisation (UoP).  A summer school is run by (UoP) where students from both years mix to form a Sport Integrity network community, where common themes and interests are pursued, and where Year 1 students are matched by research topic to their supervisors from within the Consortium.
  • In Semester 3 the MAiSI focusses on organisational issues of sports ethics and integrity focusing on economic, legal and managerial aspects and instruments for the good governance of sport (JGU and UPF). Student also commence their dissertation studies in this semester, and focus on it during Semester 4 where they are hosted by consortium partners in relation to their subject specialism.

The MAiSI graduates will benefit from opportunities to undertake practical placements within the partner's extensive network of advisory bodies, federations, non-governmental organisations, policy-makers and commercial organisations, as well as from extensive international collaboration and training opportunities, preparing them for decisively taking moral responsibility from the inside and the outside of the sports world.
