Course Description

Sport, recreation and events provide not only health, fitness and entertainment benefits to people world-wide, they comprise a multi-million dollar sector which generates employment for sport development managers, event managers, and more.

This course commences with an introduction to the sport, recreation and event sector and focuses on the key aspects of sport delivery systems, event management, leadership and programming, culture and professional identity development, sport and recreation facilities and services management, strategic and human resource management, marketing and communications, funding and finance, sport venue management, event operations management, legal aspects, and business research and planning. Students also undertake a range of professional industry practice opportunities, and community-interactive project work in the relevant industries.
