The global sports market is estimated to be worth between £400 billion and £500 billion and is growing at a significant rate year on year. According to Deloitte, sport business related activity will significantly outpace the average rate of growth in the wider economy well into the next decade. In terms of industries, sport now ranks among the top 15 mainstream activities in the UK economy including telecommunications, legal services and utilities.

Combining theory and practical application this course will draw heavily from executive international sport leaders, such as Manchester City Football Group, Edgbaston, Birmingham City Football Club and ESL to name a few, to cover multiple aspects such as technology and digital innovation, marketing, events, operations and analytics.

Given the aforementioned, and input from industry, this course is designed with the scientific (MSc) nature to enhance students with the necessary numeracy and analytic skills to see students excel and progress in the global sports industry.
