Sport Business Management
Hi all, I am new to HF but a huge hockey fan. From what I have been reading here almost everyone seems very intelligent with hockey, so I have a question for you.
Come September I will be taking the post-graduate certificate Sport Business Management at Algonquin College. I was hoping someone here would be able to provide insight, or at least an educated opinion on what they feel the odds of making it in the NHL or professional hockey will be with this program. It is a post grad program, as I will be graduating from Business Marketing at the end of this month.
Sport Business Management was developed by former NHL'er Jim Kyte, and is now run by Dave Best who was part of Olympic Canada for almost 20 years. They have guest speakers every year which includes the likes of Gary Bettman.
Now obviously I know I will not be a GM or player agent with this course, but I was hoping maybe with the marketing or sales team of an organization or something like that. Do you think this course will allow me to pursue my dream of working in the industry? Is there anything else I can do that you folks know of?
Any answers are greatly appreciated, sorry for the long post but I am glad to be part of the best hockey discussion on the Web!!
PS- this is a link tot he program if anyone wants to look at it.
