IISM launches landmark new course for Sports Science
In line with this announcement IISM has unveiled its two new programmes: Bachelor in Sports Science (BSS) and Masters in Sports Science (MSS), which will be launched from the 2022-23 academic year.
IISM, founded by former India international cricketer Nilesh Kulkarni, has been a pioneer in Sports Management Studies for about 12 years. In line with continuing its pioneering initiatives, IISM in conjunction with the University of Mumbai has come up with the two new programmes which will help match the ever-expanding field of sports.
“There are significant lessons to be learned from the time we have spent fighting the pandemic over the last couple of years. It was therefore important to have a course which includes an element of science which has become an inalienable part of Sports as a whole,” said Mr. Nilesh Kulkarni, Founder Director of IISM. “This is a landmark moment for the Indian sports community. It is just one example of how IISM is always at the forefront of providing education in courses which will impact tomorrow, rather than today.”
The course has been developed by IISM & guided by a number of industry experts including former Indian cricket team physio John Gloster, currently with Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Rajasthan Royals; former Indian team doctor Dr. Anant Joshi; noted medical practitioners, Dr. Aadil Chagla and Dr. Pralay Mujumdar along with former BCCI official Professor Ratnakar Shetty are part of the advisory board. Apart from these respected individuals a number of other industry professionals will be involved in delivering the course.
