SHORT COUR­SES

Al­though not specif­i­cally tailored for the sports and recre­ation sec­tor, there are plenty of short man­age­ment cour­ses that can pre­pare a stu­dent for that com­po­nent of a sports man­age­ment role.

VO­CA­TIONAL COUR­SES

VET path ways, such as the Diploma of Sport and Recre­ation Man­age­ment, teach the gen­eral prin­ci­ples and prac­ti­cal skills of man­age­ment – how to de­velop and im­ple­ment a busi­ness plan, man­age fi­nances and de­velop and im­ple­ment mar­ket­ing plans – as well as ap­ply them to a sport­ing and recre­ation con­text. Vo­ca­tional cour­ses of­ten com­bine class­room- based learn­ing with a prac­ti­cal in­dus­try com­po­nent.

TER­TIARY COUR­SES

Some univer­si­ties of­fer spe­cific de­grees, such as a Bach­e­lor of Sport and Recre­ation Man­age­ment but in most cases, a stu­dent will opt for a busi­ness de­gree then spe­cialise in that area. For ex­am­ple, they might study a Bach­e­lor of Busi­ness (Sport and Recre­ation man­age­ment), which re­quires three years of full-time study. Sport man­age­ment is also of­fered as a ma­jor within a Mas­ter of Busi­ness.

COST

At univer­sity, a de­gree costs about $10,000 a year. With vo­ca­tional train­ers, a diploma costs about $12,000 to­tal.
