Our Program

This one-year Ontario College Graduate Certificate program prepares students for an exciting and successful career in the ever-growing multi-billion dollar sport industry. No longer is simple passion for the game a qualification for entry: a specialized business education is required. Successful sport administrators and managers are now always well-trained, educated and highly skilled. This program prepares students to work within the broader area of sport, particularly the management and business aspects of the industry.

In three levels of study, the curriculum provides cross-disciplinary training related to: sport marketing; ticket sales; sport sponsorship; sport economics; sport finance; entrepreneurship; sport tourism; event planning and management; the sport bidding process; sport business in the social context; customer service; legal aspects of sport; sport governance; project management; community sport issues; and, sport management professional preparation. In-class work includes team work, case studies, role playing, optimal use of technology and a variety of practical assignments.

The design of the program and its complementary components is unique. Ottawa is the nation's capital and has professional sport franchises and more national governing sport bodies and multi-sport organizations than any other city in Canada. The program balances sport-business management education with an intensive experiential work placement. Throughout the duration of the program, students work a minimum of 16 hours per week within the sport industry and since experience is a key to future employment, many students take advantage and get many more placement hours under their belts.

Through an active advisory board of sport industry leaders and close relationships with employers, the program is continuously updated to meet the current demands of the sport industry. These relationships provide students with strong opportunities for networking, and bring influential industry leaders into the classroom to share their experiences. Upon graduation, students are well-prepared to begin working as a sport business professional.

This program is part of Algonquin's mobile learning initiative. All students entering into the program are expected to have and use a laptop or mobile computing device that meets or exceeds the recommended hardware requirements as designated by the program. Students in mobile learning programs will use their devices to enhance their learning experience, obtain and work with course materials, participate in collaborative and mlearning environments and become skilled, confident users of the technologies used within an educational environment and workplace.
