BPE-SWM’s curriculum includes subjects on Human Anatomy and Physiology, Foundation of Physical Education, Sports and Wellness, Sports History, Marketing and Promotion in Sports and Wellness, among others.
“BPE-SWM is a program that aims to supply the corporate industry with sports and wellness management professionals,” said Program Coordinator Blair Mayorga. “Aside from providing program opportunities for sports and fitness, we also aim to expose our students to the business and corporate setting through various internships and trainings we are bound to offer in the future in partnership with different institutions.”
The program also targets Mapúa’s student-athletes to help them have a clearer focus on careers that they would want to pursue.
Students who are enrolled or those who wish to enroll in the program may pursue careers as fitness and wellness supervisors, coaches, gym managers, recreation directors, corporate wellness trainers, sports and tournament administrators, sports tourism officers, and sports managers after graduation.
