Management skills are needed across the sport and recreation industries. The sports field is not like a traditional business, and neither are the management skills needed to succeed in this area. With the large number of professional athletes, sports organisations, facilities and events in New Zealand, people with specialist business and management skills applicable to the sport and recreation sector are in high demand.

Through the management major you develop expertise in sport management, marketing, facilities and events management, sponsorship, sport development, high-performance sport, leadership, law and finance. These management skills will open doors, both locally and internationally. You learn from staff with international and national experience, and have the opportunity to work with local sporting bodies and events.
