Why did you choose to study at ICMS? What factors influenced your decision?

Industry training was a fundamental aspect to the sports management course and the fact that I got a scholarship with the ability to network and work with the employees acted as a great stepping stone for my career.

Firstly, it offered a variety of pathways, which allowed me to find my feet. Secondly, I love sport so much, and thirdly it was very convenient and offered lots of opportunities

How would you describe the quality of teaching staff at ICMS? How have they supported you during your studies to date?
