With the proliferation of professional Sports Leagues in almost every sport, backed by business and television, and the growth of sports management firms , there are plenty of job opportunities in the Billion Dollar sports Industry in India, and hardly any trained manpower to fill those roles, because very few places offer sports management education in the country at the moment.

The Centre for Sports and Management Studies, co founded by Me Enrico Piperno , the former Indian Davis Cup and Fed Cup coach, is one such institution that is running Sports Management Courses in collaboration with Shri Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara Institute for Management Development (SDMIMD), Mysore, a very reputed Management Institution of long standing.
