A new study programme for sport establishment managers to be launched at King Sigismund University
According to GLOBS Magazine, a cooperation framework agreement was signed by the University of Physical Education and the King Sigismund University concerning a three-semester postgraduate study programme for sport establishment management, which will be launched at the King Sigismund University (ZSKE) with the professional support of the University of Physical Education in the February of 2018.
The agreement was signed by Dr Péter Szatmári CSs, rector of the King Sigismund University and Prof Dr h.c. Lajos Mocsai, rector of the University of Physical Education. The reason behind the agreement is that both universities have a lot of experience and expertise in the educational fields of physical education, medicine, sport, diplomacy, economy, communication and media science.
Sport is listed among the Hungarian strategic sectors since 2010, as a consequence of which the government follows a conscious sport establishment developing programme.
The newly built sport establishments increased the need for special expertise, because the operation of sport establishments is very different from the operation of other facilities. The aim of the new postgraduate specialisation that will be launched at the King Sigismund University in the spring semester of the 2017/2018 academic year is to train sport experts capable of managing sport establishments with the help of the acquired theoretical and practical skills.
At the same time, it is important to set a unified and comprehensive base for the economy of sport establishments, including modern management skills, legal background, modern technological and financial skills.
With the help of their managing skills and experience in the professional field, students will contribute to the development and enrichment of the sport, recreational and mental hygienic culture. Sport establishment managers will be able to find a position in sport federations, sport organisations, institutions dealing with the operation of establishments, sport enterprises and multifunctional institutions.
The list of lecturers includes such dignities as Dr István Simicskó, Minister of Defence, Dr Tünde Szabó, State Secretary for Sport, Andor Tompa, president of the Hungarian Association of Sport Establishments, Zoltán Molnár, managing director of the Budapest Sport Provider Centre Nonprofit Ltd. of public utility, and Attila Császári, sport marketing manager of Adidas Budapest Ltd.
