This subject blends both practical and theoretical components to enhance student employability in the field of sport management. The practical component involves a structured and supervised 100-hour vocational experience that is tailored to address placement objectives mutually agreed upon between you, the industry partner, and the instructor. The end result is a first-hand experience of the reality of the sport management workplace while evaluating your own strengths and weaknesses to enhance your work readiness. The in-class component equips you with tools not only to maximise your placement experience and achieve related outcomes but also to develop a flexible career strategy and ultimately, the ability to successfully communicate your own professional brand to potential employers. This subject is designed to link and complement your program of study by introducing you to the dynamics of the sport management work environment.
