I have completed both the innovative Sports Marketing Courses provided by RR in association with Deakin University. It introduced me to a lot of new concepts with detailed explanation. The videos regarding various course topics helped me understand the concepts in a much detailed manner. As a media student myself, it has helped me learn a lot and will surely be useful for me in the future.

I completed the Advanced Sports Marketing Course in August 2020 and it was exactly what I was looking for. The course covers all the major aspects of sports and it is really easy to understand for a beginner as well as an expert. I got to learn how they operate on a daily basis. You get to learn directly from the experts who are involved with the management in a clear manner. I would like to add that although this is a precise course when it comes to sports marketing and governance, yet it covers a vast array of topics. I would highly recommend this course as a stepping stone if someone is looking to get into the sports industry.

I completed the Advanced Sports Marketing Program offered by Rajasthan Royals & Deakin University. It is India's first ever online education course in Sports Marketing with Deakin University. I was able to gain a great amount of knowledge in the world of Sports Marketing and was also able to understand the insights of the franchise.  I definitely recommend this course for all those people who desire to have a better approach towards the field of sports because this course is very interesting considering the facts that it also takes us through the 365 days journey of a popular IPL team.

I have always been a cricket fanatic and wanted to do something in the sports industry along with marketing which is my subject in college. This lockdown, I started doing online courses and was sad to see that no course was designed around sports marketing or anything similar to it.  I came across the webinar that was a briefing on the Rajasthan Royals sports marketing course in partnership with Deakin university. I enrolled for the foundation course and was surprised to see how different sports marketing was and I really enjoyed learning as it never felt like a compulsion. The best part about the course was the instances and case studies from the Rajasthan Royals team itself. I have loved doing this course and would recommend it to everyone who wants to learn sports marketing.
