As technology develops, however, more and more fans are moving online, and savvy sports marketers know how to effectively reach this audience, too. Our Sports Marketing Management course will show you how digital communities interact and give you strategies to leverage your online brand presence to take your current organization even further.

In this expert-led, online course, you will:
