Sport management

Students who love everything about sport and want to pursue a career in the sport management industry should consider our sport management degree programs at FedUni. Students can either complete a three-year full-time Bachelor of Sport Management degree on its own or combine it with the Bachelor of Business and complete them over four years full-time. At FedUni our sport management programs have been designed to provide students with the theoretical and practical knowledge about the sport industry combined with grounding in business expertise. Our programs run with a blend of online and face-to-face lectures, tutorial and seminars where students develop their critical thinking capacity to prepare them to work as dynamic thinkers in the sport management industry.

Sport management internship

A unique aspect of our sport management programs that sets us apart from other sport management degrees, is our professional practice and sport management internship. We value student-based learning and work closely with the sport industry to provide students with opportunities to learn by applying theory into "real world" practice. Students complete a minimum of 150 hours of industry placement throughout their first few years of study. In the final semester of their program, students complete a full-time, 14-week long internship placement within the sporting industry. Not only does the internship provide valuable learning outcomes for our students, it also puts them ahead of the field when it comes to applying for their first job once they have graduated.

Career pathways

Many of our sport management graduates are now working across the sport industry at national, state and regional sporting organisations. These include the Hawthorn Football Club, Melbourne Storm, Netball Australia, Netball Victoria, Cricket Australia, Cricket Victoria, Basketball Victoria and Cycling Victoria. Our graduates are also working in the sport event industry, state and local government as recreation officers, recreational facility managers, sport development officers, and sport marketing and sponsorship.
