Nadia Atienza, Marketing & Communications Expert and SAWI Course Director in sports marketing, said : « Over the last twenty years, the sports industry has been having a growing impact on the world economy, investing in public infrastructure, mobilising resources and creating new professions and jobs.

Sports, when seen as a highly emotional and inspirational tool for people at a large scale, seems easy to understand. However sports has its own codes and specificities that professionals interested in working in this area should know.

It is therefore essential to professionalize this field in order to make experts perfectly aware of the specificities of the sports environment. »
