Prepare for a career in one of the world’s most exciting industries. The Diploma in Sports Management is a one-year course combining the knowledge of Flinders academics with the real-world skills and experience of Port Adelaide Football Club.

Based at Alberton Oval, the Diploma in Sports Management will teach you the core skills needed to begin a career in sports management, backed by over 100 hours of practical and hands-on training with Port Adelaide players, management and staff.
