Student review
Studying a Bachelor of Business (Sport Management) you're getting exposed to the sports industry and learning from Lecturers and Tutors that have relevant experience in the field and know what they're teaching, they teach current subjects and push you with not only knowledge but also exposing and introducing you to positions currently in the industry and incredible opportunities. They don't just stop at University though as they continue the support well past graduation and are always there to offer advice if needed.

It was a good course but too bad these days you need connections to get a job as no one cares about a piece of paper. The problem is that I have heaps of experience out of Uni and still can’t find work in relation to my degree. Sadly I am unlucky.
