The Barbados Olympic Association Inc. wishes to announce the availability of this exciting educational opportunity.

A brief description of the MEMOS Programme (Executive Masters in Sport Organisations Management) is outlined below.



To provide sports managers with access to training courses of a higher education level and international significance, and to contribute towards improvement of the management of their Olympic sports organisations.


The programme is available to all the National Olympic Committees (NOCs) and candidates nominated by them who have been accepted on the MEMOS Programme.

Olympic Solidarity strongly recommends that, in accordance with the IOC policy on the promotion of women in sport, NOCs consistently encourage female sports managers’ participation in courses.


NOC candidates accepted for MEMOS in English, French and Spanish are eligible for an Olympic Solidarity scholarship.

MEMOS is an Executive Masters in Sports Management offered by a network of universities. Each course is conducted over a period of one year, and consists of modules focusing on a specific facet of sports management (Governance and Strategic Planning; Financial Management; Marketing; Communications and Social Media; Human Resources; and Project and Event Management).

The key element of the course is the development of a project aiming to improve an aspect of the management of the participant’s organisation. Each participant is assisted in this endeavour by an assigned tutor, with whom he or she remains in contact throughout the year. The course concludes with a project defense in front of MEMOS examining boards, followed by a public presentation of the successful projects.

Interested candidates are asked to apply in writing to the Barbados Olympic Association Inc. by Wednesday 31 May 2017.
NOTE: A letter of endorsement by the National Federation must accompany the application.
