Vivas & Graduation Ceremony

5 – 6 April 2018
NYON – SWITZERLAND

The viva (oral defence of professional thesis) is the final examination undergone by participants who have been successful in their class participation and continuous assessments. The vivas will be followed by a graduation ceremony at which the participants can celebrate their achievements. Beyond that, the participants are invited to keep in touch with each other by joining the MESGO alumni community.

“MESGO is a challenging executive master’s programme. It has a perfect mix of academics, who expect work based on sound theory and evidence, and many high-level practitioners, who provide experience and real-life examples and involve the participants in discussions. As a result, MESGO is not about the routine application of common-sense governance knowledge – it is about enabling the current and future leaders of sports organisations to make shrewd decisions driven by critical analysis.”
