Bachelor of Sport Management / Bachelor of Business

Federation University

You have an interest in figures. In how companies operate. How to make businesses profitable. And how to market these businesses to the right audience. But you're also a keen sportsperson, whether a participant or a supporter. This double degree can lead to you marketing major sporting teams, managing the finances for multi-million dollar sporting facilities and advising councils on their recreational facilities. The mix of sports industry skills and business expertise doubles your job options when you graduate and you can even take your business skills to different industries altogether. Your subjects range from legal studies to health promotion, human movement to media. And you'll get practical experience through a final semester full-time internship placement in the sporting industry. This is a chance to learn from the experts and make contacts which are likely to get you your future jobs.
