The Master of Management (Sport Management) at City Campus prepares students for a range of careers in the global sports industry by learning to work with professional sports teams, manage relationships between athletes and the media, or start your own sports business. Students will graduate with the skills needed to be a sport management leader with professional sport teams, international, national and state sport governing bodies, and at major sport events and venues. Starting with the foundation business knowledge required of all managers, students will study a variety of sport management electives and complete a research thesis project as a pathway to a research degree. The course uses case-study-based learning and features regular guest lectures by business leaders. Students will gain valuable insights into performance development, learn how to develop and evaluate innovative business processes, and implement management and communication strategies related to athlete and coach welfare. The course partners with the AFL Coaches Association and AFL Sports Ready, meaning students will gain experience from professionals at the top of their careers. All of the sports and management core subjects are offered in accelerated block mode at our City Campus, and most classes are delivered in four-day intensives at teaching space in Melbourne's CBD. The programme offers a flexible timetable that allows students to balance their study with other commitments. All core subjects are available as evening classes.
