ISC ACADEMY launches the Business of Sport Certificate
Earlier this year, the ISC Academy launched their first two online courses: Fan Engagement and Sports Strategic Planning. Today, the ISC Academy has developed and launched the Business of Sport Certificate with 15 individual courses, which together make up the ISC Business of Sport Certificate.
Nigel Fletcher, ISC Chief Executive, said:
Education and Insights in the Business of Sport does not stop with a formal education certificate from the ISC Academy. The journey continues for all ISC Alumni. ISC truly understand that networking and ongoing relevant content is key. As an ISC Alumni, one has a lifetime access to the course materials. Those learning materials provide an ongoing guide to assist you in your workplace.
ISC is in the industry, ISC brings the industry together and whether it is attending the flagship International Sports Convention or the ISC Study visits or accessing our weekly podcasts and content, ISC is part of your ongoing career journey. It is what makes ISC Academy unique in terms of study, qualification and network.
I had the fortunate position to be the first person globally nearly two decades ago to attain two masters (MSc and MBA) in the business of Sport and strongly believe in specialised education. But with changing patterns in work, lifestyle and significant advancements in digital technology the ISC Academy will provide a lifelong learning journey to thousands globally.
The ISC Academy looks to disrupt the global provision for education in the business of sport and to ensure sports education is accessible, affordable and practical to those in and out of the industry, at both entry and management levels.
The ISC Academy benefits from guest professors providing industry expertise/knowledge to the online courses. These include the likes of:
- Micky Lawler, President, WTA
- Marissa Pace, Chief Marketing Officer, World Rugby

International Sports Convention (ISC)
The International Sports Convention (ISC) was founded in 2009 and is a media, events and content company providing intelligence, networking and a meeting place for the Business of Sport. From the very beginning, content has been central to the ISC and what it provides for individuals and organisations in the sports industry. Over 1,000 speakers have taken part in ISC events. Given ISC’s knowledge, expertise and industry network, it launched the ISC Academy. ISC’s tagline is “For the Industry, By the Industry”, illustrating the expert opinion, expertise, insight and knowledge transfer from within the industry. The ISC Academy will provide online courses in the business of sport aimed at both students and professionals. In 2021, the ISC Academy will also include the ISC Sports Marketing diploma and the ISC MBA in the Business of Sport.
