>>India’s first industry curated Sports Management course receives overwhelming response
After announcing the flagship program in July, the Global Institute of Sports Business (GISB) has received tremendous response as over 200 aspiring sports management professionals have already applied for the 15 month course. In addition, GISB has conducted ‘Careers in Sports’ seminars in Mumbai, Pune and Delhi and had filled to capacity attendance with over 100 individuals taking part in these interactive sessions led by high profile figures within the sports industry. The substantial growth in the business of sport in India over the past few years combined with an increased demand for quality sports management professionals to fill available positions has led to this accelerated interest among aspirants.
The Global Institute of Sports Business, located in Mumbai, has been jointly established by India On Track, a leading sports development, and management organization and with Spain-based Instituto Superior de Derecho y Economia (ISDE), a globally renowned Law & Business School. Due to the overwhelming response, GISB and ISDE management have made a strategic decision to close applications for the first batch of the Certificate in Sports Management course by 25th September.
