SPORT AND BUSINESS STUDIES (MARKETING) PROGRAMME
Rugby, sport and the business industry is a multi-billion-rand industry and is the creator of many thousands of jobs. There is a definite gap in SA and overseas regarding professional players, sport coaches and managers. We understand that if we want to send a generation of students into the market that have an advantage over other students, they must be equipped with: - A relevant qualification. Therefore, we assist students to complete the Higher Certificate (“bridging course”) in year 1 - to proceed with their degree studies in year 2. - Sufficient practical experience. Student already starts with his internship from year 1 - to integrate his academic knowledge with work experience in the appropriate field. Aims - Equip students with comprehensive and practical skills so that they can start and run their own businesses (entrepreneurs); or could be involved in other businesses (business managers). - Train competent sport professionals.
