Gone are the days of people making money from getting into a career in Investment Banking armed with their degrees and diplomas from IIMs and ISBs and the ilk.
The in thing is Sports Management.
Do you know how to organize, manage and conduct a popular sports / games event?
Yes? Ta da ! You are a millionaire, next year same time.
Sports Management is a niche area where only highly competent minds can survive. Those people who don’t snore when they listen to CNBC or make paper rockets out of balance sheets are highly encouraged to take up this as their career. No you don’t have to walk in to the fields, you don’t have to know what the dimension of a basketball court is, and you don’t even have to play computer games. Infact a little knowledge of any of those is a disqualification. The only game you need to be good at is bean counting.
Do not wonder if Sports Management finds a prominent place in those fatty Finance Text books, or may be offered as a specialization in the premier B-Schools.
Dear citizens of tomorrow: watch out and keep a track of all sorts of sports and games events happening around the world. What if you missed the CWG, you still have Asian Games, Lot of Athletic Meets, Olympics and a zillion other small tournaments apart from the adopted national game of Cricket. Start building you personal currency chests. Right away !
