Through their ties to the industry, you will have the chance to engage with and network with guest speakers, who offer their specific sport management knowledge, experience and insights.

You’ll develop a higher-level understanding of business and management principles and their application to the sport industry. This will allow you to advance your knowledge of the processes that have contributed to the emergence of sport as a global phenomenon at significant political and policy levels across public, private and voluntary sectors of international economies.
