Sports Industry in India, in contemporary times, is one of the fastest-growing industries in the world. Sports Management is a perfect and rewarding career path for sports enthusiasts. The institute puts deep emphasis on classroom learning and practical exposure for overall development of the students.

The students at IISM are ensured to be given periodical industry exposure before graduating from the institute so that they are all industry ready. IISM believes that it is important for students to have experienced the chills and thrills of the sports industry beforehand so that they become skilled Sports Management professionals in the future. Pursuing practical exposure at prominent sporting events as well as organizations gives a first-hand experience to students which helps them in their respective careers.

Our student, Bhaskar Jyoti Choudhary, is sharing with you all his experience while interning at respectful organizations in the Sports Industry.

Working with an esteemed football school of India as an intern was worthwhile as it shaped my understanding of the sports world. Bhaichung Bhutia Football School’s was born out of a collective desire to improve children’s lives at grassroots level. The philosophy that “No Indian kids should be deprived of good coaching facilities” led to the establishment of BBFS which is accredited by AIFF with a 4-star rating, a feat only clubs like Bengaluru F.C & Jamshedpur F.C could match.

The people from the organisation would render their heart out on supporting talented young footballers from economically weaker section to develop into professional footballers in an organized manner. BBFS landed me an opportunity to work on these strategic objectives to ensure that every child has the opportunity to fulfill their potential and enjoy the life changing benefits that come from play and sport.

Working as the Business Development Executive for the SquareOut Sports Solution helped me dive deep down into the corporate sports world. Driven with a sense of purpose & passion for sports led to its inception where I along with Rahul Carlos Rodrigues, the founder of the company & an MBA graduate of football management from University of Liverpool, strive to create an ideal sports ecosystem to promote sports excellence.

We took the initiative to create sustainable & viable business model for sports enterprises to maximize the power of sports beyond the playing field. We offer specially designed overseas tours and an access to elite tournaments to help budding players to explore their potential by competing against some of the best age group teams across La Liga, Premier League, Bundesliga etc. thereby providing a platform for young professional players to unlock hidden sporting potential.
