INTERNATIONAL SPORT MANAGEMENT

CAREERS IN SPORT

The sports industry is fast-paced, exciting and full of job opportunities. The industry is the second fastest growing sector which is expected to reach $599.9 billion by 2025 (Business Research Company, 2021). To find out more about the career opportunities and growth of the sports industry click on the tiles below.

Through its relationship with the World Olympians Association (WOA), WAoS has been working with many Olympians wanting to give back to the community by helping the next generations of athletes. They are involved in multiple roles, such as assessing athlete friendly education centres, empowering student-athletes, or promoting dual career study options, in order to support student-athletes from all over the world.

OLYMPIAN AFEC ASSESSORS

Following receipt of a school’s expression of interest form, schools will be allocated an assessment team for the duration of the accreditation process. WAoS is fortunate to have available Olympians as AFEC Assessors who will form part of these teams.​

Through relationships with the likes of the World Olympians Association, WAoS has trained and certified Olympians to fulfil an important role in the assessment of schools to be athlete friendly. Olympians can provide a perspective through the personal experience of being a student-athlete, which provides unique and tangible insights for schools.​

Meet the Olympian AFEC Assessors:

OLYMPIANS

WAoS has appointed the Southeast Europe Study Centre (SESC) as the WAoS official Study Centre for Southeast Europe and selected countries in Middle East, offering several WAoS Industry Pathway programmes to the local community.


WAoS trained and appointed Olympian Athlete Certificate Educators to teach the WAoS Athlete Certificate throughout Southeast Europe.

OLYMPIAN ATHLETE CERTIFICATE EDUCATORS

WAoS has developed an empowerment programme by creating a link between AFEC schools and Olympians to support student-athletes at the start of the athletic journeys.​

Student-athletes have the opportunity to learn from Olympian athletes who have experience and understand the successes and challenges of being an athlete, whilst Olympians are able to contribute back to society and connect with young athletes who have aspirations of themselves becoming Olympians as well.

OLYMPIAN EMPOWERMENT COACHES

WAoS strongly believes in the importance for young talented athletes to maintain a dual career. Additionally, those with a passion for sport can realise an exciting career dream through the study of international sport management.


Our WAoS Ambassadors have competed at the highest level of their sport and share these beliefs. We’re proud that the WAoS Ambassadors promote a dual career and the exciting opportunities following your sporting passion can provide as a career path. Meet our Ambassadors below.
