My expectation from this course exceeded my wildest imaginations, it actually changed my perspective of how I view sports before. I should really recommend that you keep up the good work and take this course to even greater heights. (Fransiska Katjaimo, 2017).


I appreciated the lecturing style and delivery of materials, which make the theory applicable to everyday working life. (Deon Curtis, 2018).



I am now more aware of the current sport management trends, and this has definitely improved my perception and self-confidence. My interaction with all the international guest speakers was also invaluable. (Brian Moyo, 2016).
