Flexible: Professors teach some classes and/or workshops from DC’s learning spaces and students have the choice of attending in person, on campus in the classroom/lab or attending class remotely. These classes and/or workshops are delivered in real-time [synchronously]. Flexible programs may also include courses that are delivered remotely.
Attending these workshops in-person is not mandatory. The workshops will be ‘streamed’ so those learning remotely will have an experience very close to ‘being there’. If students cannot travel to campus due to illness, quarantine, or feel that the risk of coming to campus is too high, they will be able to achieve all of the course learning outcomes.
With a unique combination of business skills and a solid understanding of the sport industry, sport managers oversee professional and amateur athletes and teams; co-ordinate sporting events; and work behind the scenes at some of the biggest sporting venues in the world.
