Post Graduate Diploma in Sports Management

What is Sports Management?

  • In order to manage the growing sports culture in the country, there is a large demand for highly
    trained and educated sports professionals who can meet the fast changing needs of the sport
    industry.
  • The sporting business which was considered as a leisure or recreational activity has now become
    a multi-billion-dollar industry.
  • Many sports event management companies, sports clubs and organizations need highly
    competent sports administrators, supervisors, managers and other support staff to manage
    their day to day business.
  • In this career, you can continue to live out your passion for sport, for just as long as you want.
    Instead of a boring 9 to 5 desk job, you would be a part of one of the most vibrant and fun-filled
    industries in the world.

A Sports Management degree takes the student from being just a fan, or a player, and teaches them the
Business of Sports!
