Certificate in Sport Management
Millions of people regularly go to the sports club, or work out at fitness clubs. The license fee for broadcasting rights of sports coverage cost several hundreds of millions, depending on the type of sport. Sporting goods, sports and fitness clothing, dietary supplements, sports engineering, sports betting, the labor market for top athletes and sports sponsorship form other large and ever-expanding markets within the sports sector. Sports thus form a large potential industry with lots of opportunities.
The course will teach you the professional and methodical knowledge and competences that prepare you to undertake management tasks in the sport industry, i. e. planning, organizing, staffing, leading, and/or controlling in sport organizations such as sport clubs, sport and fitness studios, sporting goods manufacturers, sponsors, and sport media companies.
The specialization in Sport Management is designed for occupied men and women with little or no prior knowledge who want to participate in a
education program at ISCED Level 4/EQF Level 5 in order to make new career opportunities accessible, increase their occupational mobility, secure their current employment, or return to work after parental leave.[more]

The New Elite
"Online Education can […] be extremely egalitarian, but it is egalitarian in a funny way. It can catapult the smart, motivated, but nonelite individuals over the members of the elite communities. [… A] good education no longer relies on living near a major city."
