About the Course
Indian Institute of Management Rohtak is the first amongst all IIMs to have PG Diploma Programme in Sports Management. The institute invites online applications for admission into the second batch of a two-year specialized program in “Sports Management” for experienced professionals, sports enthusiasts, and sports administrators. This program is for industrious participants interested in working in the sports, entertainment, and related industries. Graduates of the program will be equipped to understand the legal, regulatory, operational, financial, and branding concepts in the sports industry, nationally and globally. That understanding enables graduates to solve the problems arising in the industry and carve a niche for themselves in this growing sector in India.
The sports management is highly professionalized in developed nations. The global sports market is estimated at USD 600-700 billion. The United States, Australia, Europe, and even China, all have well established sporting leagues which are managed by professional managers. The domain of sports management encompasses various functions such as sports administration and planning, event management, sports negotiations and compliance, sports communication, management of elite athletes, sports academies, facility management, and sports marketing management. All of the aforementioned functions require professional management.
The size of the Indian sports market is 1899 million USD. The advent of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2009 revolutionized the sporting environment in India. The resounding success of the IPL opened the doors for many professional leagues such as Indian Sports League (ISL), Pro Kabaddi League (PKL), Indian Hockey League (IHL), which in turn have started to inculcate a year-round professional sporting calendar in India. Hence, the market has been growing at the compound annual growth rate of 5%. All of these macro-environmental forces have led to the need of trained professional managers, which this program wishes to address.
