Australia has one of the strongest sporting sectors in the world. Underpinning this multi-billion dollar industry are the business professionals who provide direction and leadership to sporting organisations across the country.
The Master of Business (Sport Management) develops a comprehensive understanding of the integration of business disciplines in the effective management of sport and the leadership to provide effective management and direction to sporting organisations.
Whether it is at the elite, semi-elite or recreational levels, sport management at Deakin will prepare you to deliver on this strategic dimension of the industry, in such areas as finance, marketing, management or development.
Deakin offers many courses which can be studied by distance education overseas.
However, international students living in Australia must, in each compulsory trimester (that is, Trimesters 1 and 2), enrol in at least one unit that is offered as a Campus located unit and can, in addition enrol in units offered via Cloud (online). International students are not permitted to do more than 25% of their total course via Cloud (online) learning. Best practice is to enrol in mostly Campus located units in each compulsory trimester.
In a non-compulsory trimester (Trimester 3), international students may study Cloud (online) units only.
The Master of Business (Sport Management) comprises 12 credit points comprising 10 credit points of core units and 2 credit points of elective units. Students who have completed the Graduate Certificate of Business (Sport Management) are eligible to articulate into the Master of Business (Sport Management).
