Local degrees on offer Image

In the ever-changing world of sports media and sport business, the need for flexibility and a wide-ranging skill set has never been more important.  

Offered at Southbank’s Holmesglen City Campus on St Kilda Rd, sports media and sport business degrees are designed to ensure students who aspire to work in the industries have what they need to succeed.

For course leader, Robbie Coyle (pictured), engaging with industry leaders is a hallmark of both courses.

“Our degrees are the most industry engaged of their type,” he said. “Our partners, such as Fox Footy, AFL Victoria, Basketball Victoria, Cricket Victoria, the Melbourne Stars and SEN are leaders in their field.”

As part of their studies, students work closely with the partners to gain valuable experience and the opportunity to put their skills to the test.

The extensive industry engagement opportunities involves students working with clubs from the Victorian Amateur Football Association to develop a range of strategy documents, attending field trips and hearing from a range of leading professionals before completing a 228 hour internship in their final year.

“Our internship program has been a huge success. Our students learn so much from the experience and some of them have received ongoing work opportunities with our partners, with three graduates currently working with Fox Footy, beyond their internships.”

According to Mr Coyle, the courses’ boutique class sizes also add to the learning experience.

The courses have also won praise from industry leaders, such as Sportspeople global recruitment executive Ros Holding.

“The program is really addressing and progressing the right questions to make sense of transition into the sector even more possible for graduates,” she said.

Both degrees are now accepting applications for second semester commencing 24 July 2017. To apply visit holmesglen.edu.au/sportsmedia or holmesglen.edu.au/sportbusiness.
