RIASA Curriuclum

The academic program will be delivered in accordance with US accreditation standards by Richmond, The American International University in London, which holds independent accreditation from three separate agencies; The Middle States Commission on Higher Education, the British Accreditation Council and The Open University.

The degree program reflects the main strands of the University’s mission, its commitment to liberal arts, multiculturalism, and to the employability of its graduates. Leadership is an integrating and unifying theme throughout the degree program, which prepares students for careers in the global workplace.

The BA Degree in Business Administration: International Sports Management provides a multidisciplinary approach to managing in the global economy, including understanding of cultural diversity, the theory and political economy of international trade and foreign investment, the global monetary system, and the strategy of international business, as well as specialist sports subjects such as Sports Finance, Law, and Marketing.

The Liberal Arts Core Curriculum program is based on the US liberal arts educational philosophy that the most important aspect of becoming well-educated is to have a broad knowledge. Thus the first three semesters in this program encourage exploration of a wide range of subjects and skills.
