International Sports Management Academy

Sport is a proven and efficient vehicle for building and connecting communities. Sport plays an invaluable role in unifying people with a common passion. Nationalism and sports are often intertwined and sport is also a powerful instrument for diplomacy and business development. Professional management of sports is, therefore, an effective tool for society building and national progress.

International Sports Management Academy (ISMA), with its head office in Noordwijk, the Netherlands, offers an international platform for management of sports, executive programs, masterclasses and conferences with the aim to share knowledge and experience in management, operational structures and grassroots sports development.
  • Executive Programs

    The jewel on the crown of the ISMA-programs is the five-days Executive Program Sports Management, the Dutch way.

    The Action Learning Project is an important additional component based on a real life case in the participant's organisation. During the execution of the project ISMA will provide (distance) coaching to the individual participants.

  • Masterclasses & Events

    ISMA has developed a range of masterclasses, conferences and events regarding grassroots sports development, sports infrastructure, innovations in sports, marketing of sports and organization models.

  • Government Support

    ISMA supports governments, sports organizations and sports related companies in their (strategic) sports development related issues.
