The growing number of companies in this area has increased the need for skilled individuals in sales, management, and product development. OSV’s answer to this need was to create education programs allowing outdoor sports companies to recruit qualified graduates who are well trained, outdoor sports enthusiasts, and quickly operational.
Created in 2012, the Master of Science in Sports & Outdoor Industry Management and the Bachelor’s in Performance Sports Textile & Footwear train students in management and product development respectively.
The new Bachelor’s in International Sales Specialists in Sports program fulfills the need for skilled graduates in sales; the first intake was in September 2014.
All three programs were established in close collaboration with professionals from the outdoor sports industry in order to address their specific needs.
