As in, why do we offer a Master of Sport Leadership, instead of a Master of Sport Management, the comparable degree you’ll see at most other schools? At CSL we think our students should focus on more than simply managing changes in the industry; they should be industry leaders. Leadership is more than a buzzword at CSL. It's why our students engage with the local community, earn valuable job experience as part of our curriculum and set the agenda for the future of our industry.
