Driving the fast-paced world of sport to new heights, GIS is powered by a global network of industry leaders and elite stadium venues.

GIS is both global in name and by nature. Our students and alumni have unique access to six stadium locations worldwide. Our senior leadership team originate from three continents and have an abundance of experience in international education and sport. Our new Global Industry Advisors are a collection of influential sports leaders from across the world who feed into your degree provision, global experiences and career opportunities. Our mantra ‘driven by sport, powered by industry’ is embodied in everything we do.

We can’t wait for you to get started mastering the global sports industry.
