We are now waiting for new students who will be able to join the network of performance analysis of sport professionals in two years’ time,” said the Director of IMPAS study programme Assoc.

Students of International Master in Performance Analysis of Sport study programme learn to conduct a high-level performance analysis of sport and adapt their skills in professional and recreational sports on the basis of the latest knowledge in sports science.
Technology is increasingly influencing sport, management of sports training is improving, and performance analysts of sport are in great demand because coaches are no longer able to perform the analysis based on modern methods.
Graduates of the study programme are conferred Master’s degree in Sport. They can work as performance analysts of sport in sports clubs, as developers and experts of projects related to sporting activities and coaching analysis, to hold positions of development managers in international and national sports organizations, to work as development advisors in sports clubs and modern research laboratories or to hold positions of researchers and/ or analysts in institutions directly linked to performance analysis of sport.
In addition to the graduates of sport, the study programme should be of great interest to engineers and graduates of technology (including information technology). Once the students become familiar with the principles and methods of performance analysis of sport, they will be able to apply and develop technological innovations in the sports and recreation sectors. The acquired skills will provide a solid foundation for those who want to turn these innovations into their own business.
