This joint programme affords you the opportunity to study two subjects at undergraduate level, enabling you to benefit from the high-quality teaching across two discipline areas. Studying Business and Sport at BGU provides you with possible career trajectories that include sport development and /or management, adventure education, physical education, health and fitness coaching and the recreation industry (in either trainer or management roles). This innovative combination also enables entrepreneurial and self-employment opportunities.
