This subject is designed to complement students’ program of study by introducing you to the dynamics of the sport management work environment. It includes both a practical and theoretical component designed to prepare you to transition into an exciting career in sport management. The practical component provides students with a structured and supervised 100-hour vocational experience providing the opportunity to experience first-hand the reality of the workplace situation. This experience will afford each student the opportunity to experience professional sport management environments while evaluating their own strengths and weaknesses to enhance work readiness. Each student will be required to develop specific placement objectives in consultation with the placement organisation and your academic supervisor. The theoretical component is designed to focus on skills essential for transferring and applying the information learnt throughout your degree. The in-class component equips students with tools to maximise the placement experience, achieve related outcomes, develop a flexible career strategy, and ultimately, develop the ability to communicate a professional brand to potential employers.
