About Sports Management

If you are passionate about your sport, why not barrack for your career by studying a course in sports management?

It is said that sports management can be traced back to ancient Greece with the governance of gladiators and competitors in the Olympics. These days it’s a more complicated affair, incorporating the fundamental skills of management such as planning, organising, negotiating, budgeting and reviewing performance.

Professional sport is a multi-million dollar worldwide industry and a career in sports management can involve a range of representative levels, from elite athletes to amateur sports and governing bodies. Career opportunities within the sport management sector include sponsorship and marketing, administration and player management, as well as media and communications.
