The institute is the first IIM to launch a sports management programme designed for professionals and sports enthusiasts.

The graduates of this course would be equipped to understand legal, regulatory, operational, financial, and branding concepts in the sports industry.

Director, IIM-Rohtak, Prof Dheeraj Sharma said the Indian sports market was growing at a fast pace.

“This is due to the revolutionised sporting environment created due to professional leagues operating around the year. Thus this programme is designed on a par with the best in the world to train professional managers who can embark on career opportunities in various functions of sports management such as sports administration and planning, event management, sports negotiations and compliance, management of elite athletes, sports academies, facility management, and sports marketing,” he said.

Candidate with a bachelor’s degree in any discipline can apply for this study programme, whereas work experience in the relevant field will be an added advantage.
