Develop your skills in strategic thinking and leadership, understand sport data analytics and investigate the trends changing the future of sport.  

You’ll benefit from assignments and experiences based on Swinburne research with partners such as Richmond Football Club, the Australian Football League, Tennis Australia, as well as government, agencies and sport technology start-ups.

You’ll apply innovation toolkits, prototype solutions and participate in challenges, such as innovation sprints and interdisciplinary projects, including activities inspired by your passions and interests.
