Welcome to the World Rugby Administrators' Academy

The World Rugby Administrators' Academy is a partnership between World Rugby and the World Academy of Sport, established in 2006 to deliver world-class academic programmes that are in touch with industry trends and developments, for administrators, event organisers, former athletes and other members in the rugby business.

Through the World Rugby Administrators' Academy, current and potential leaders within the global rugby community have benefited from attending our intensive residential executive education programmes that cover topics such as International Event Management and Sports Federation Management.
