Deakin ranks third in the world for Sports Management courses
Deakin University ranks in the top three Sports Management Masters degrees across the globe and first in Australia, according to the prestigious Sports Business International (SBI).
The Sport Business International 2014 Postgraduate Sports Course Rankings annually grades the quality of 70 Sport Management Masters courses around the world. Deakin this year came in at number three and was the only Australian university in the top 25, ranking as Australia's number one university for sport management.
SBI also found that Deakin University students are the highest paid sport business masters graduates on the planet. Deakin graduates earn on average US$84,000 a year three years after finishing their studies, compared to US$79,000 for students from University of Oregon Warsaw Sports Marketing Centre and US$76,100 for students at Ohio University Master of Sport Administration.
'This is an outstanding outcome and affirms the employability of Deakin graduates.
