Sports Management

Why study?

  • Unexplored potential

    Sport in Croatia is specific when the number of its people achieving significant athletic results is taken into consideration. It is an indicator (or proof) that despite the relatively poor financial support, there is a great unexplored potential in sports. A potential that you can explore!

  • Do what you enjoy

    Statistics show that very few people enjoy their line of work. Do you enjoy sports? Then don’t be one of them, but listen to the wise Confucius and choose a job you enjoy doing, so you may never have to work a day in your life.

  • Become part of athletic success

    Would you like to be on the winning team? How can you achieve this? Study Sports and Sport Professions Management and acquire the necessary skills for successful sport system management. Play an important role in athletic success!
