The Student Seminar is an international four-days meeting of sport management students and is held September 1-5, prior to the European Sport Management Conference (September 5-8). Both the seminar and the conference are included in the fee (see below).
Target Group and Seminar Focus
The Student Seminar is primarily aimed to enhance managerial skills in practice while cooperating in the international environment. The educational programme consists of a management game (team projects), lectures and workshops related to the topic of the projects. It also includes field trips and study visits as well as social events. Furthermore, given the number of leading experts and established researchers, the European Sport Management Conference is a great opportunity for networking and building professional relationships.
The topic of the Student Seminar is based on the conference theme: Bridging Sport, Tourism and Leisure Management. More specifically the Student Seminar will focus on questions regarding on the interfaces of sport, tourism and leisure activities, the development of new trends in these fields and how todays challenges and opportunities can affect sport and tourism management. Therefore, it is key that the students are enrolled in studies with a sport management, tourism management or leisure management focus.
Cases for the management game are developed in the innovative context of the tourism destination Innsbruck-Tirol, framed by the long-lasting tradition of hospitality in the region located in the heart of Europe and its strong connection with sports.
