Details

Although sport provides entertainment and excitement to millions around the world, it is important to remember that the sporting event itself is just the tip of the iceberg. Behind the scenes, there is an entire industry and, like any other industry, the sport industry needs first-class management.

The Bachelor of Business with a major in Sport Management combines management skills with a specific sport focus. This combination is rare in the market, and such skills are in high demand in the areas of event management, sport venue management, and the management of athletes and sporting teams.

The course provides a coherent, broad, business-based program, with advanced in-depth development of the functions required of a practising sport management professional. It also equips our graduates with the skills, knowledge and attitudes to enhance, support and encourage healthy lifestyles through sport, including elite sport, rehabilitation or social activities.

The Western Sydney University Sport Management major has been developed in close consultation with the industry's emerging professional association and is well suited to equip you with the real-life education required to contribute effectively to the development of a dynamic industry.

Practical Experience

The Sport Management major includes a number of units that provides you with interaction with industry partners, providing valuable insight and networking opportunities. This culminates in an engaged unit of study in the final semester of study in which you will work on an industry-based problem. All of our students are encouraged to independently gain work experience in order to enhance their practical skills and career prospects.
