The Graduate Diploma in Sport Business and Integrity addresses the dual responsibilities sport managers now have.
The responsibilities are to not only run leagues and associations, manage facilities, deliver events, and administer clubs at the highest professional level, but also grow the game, meet its social obligations, build communities, and using sport’s kudos and good standing to eliminate barriers to participation and reduce social disadvantage.
