Kick your future goals with the Graduate Certificate in Sport Management

The September semester for this program will be delivered in a multi-modal format with a mixture of on-campus, mixed mode and remote classes. All students will be able to access Bond’s exceptional, personalised learning experience regardless of their location. For students who are able to attend campus, we are working toward the resumption of face-to-face classes especially for small group instruction such as tutorials, seminars, workshops and lab sessions.

The Graduate Certificate in Sport Management program has been designed for students to achieve an integrated knowledge base using an evidence based, case study approach.  

Students will gain a strong foundation in required sport management sub-disciplines including finance, high performance sport, organisational behaviour, and international sport business management. The program is also appropriate for professionals seeking to upgrade their qualifications, and/or to achieve a career change from another field into the diverse sport industry.
