A few words from the President of Sports Management School

Michael Tapiro

         “These days the Sport business has become an economic powerhouse of its own. It plays a crucial role in all international sporting events and their television rights which cater to a constantly growing number of spectators worldwide. Nowadays sport is in the hands of legal, financial, management and marketing experts but it is also a social and political lever in the economical development of towns, regions, countries and continents. Sport business has authenticity and attractiveness.
Sport knows no boundaries. Its international development grows at the same rate as the development of emerging nations and thanks to the colossal investment in multimedia. Sporting organizations require ever more skilled professionals to ensure a smooth transition and to stay afloat in a sea of change. Sports Management School trains future managers for a sport sector in need of experts who are aware of the development stakes and conscious of the importance of ethics and good governance”
