China industry spotlight: Sports Management
What can be better than doing a job that combines work with play? Sports management is the perfect career for anyone who is good at business and loves sports. Jobs in this industry are extremely diverse from accounting to product licensing to community relations to being an agent or recruiter. Getting an internship in this industry allows you to better grasp the economics of the sports industry and once you understand that, you can pretty much do any job you want within the industry.
China has a special need for people with sports management experience as the country builds up their sports industries. Have you noticed in recent years that more and more gold Olympic medals are going to China? One way they keep winning new sports every Olympics is by focusing a great deal of effort and money on their sports industry.
Although sports industries in other countries may be more developed than China’s, the sports industry here is growing by leaps and bounds. International sports brands have definitely taken notice, but Chinese brands are also stepping into the world arena. Li Ning, the Nike of China, recently signed A-list athlete Dwayne Wade to sponsor their brand. With so many exciting things happening in China’s sports management industry, now is the best time to gain experience in this field.
