Course content

The Business Management in Sport MSc is a programme that will explore the evolving and multi-faceted area of management in sport through core modules from business and bespoke sport modules. In addition, the programme focusses on, ethical considerations, major competitions, sports marketing, heritage and sport’s political, social, economic, and cultural contexts.

This course is ideal for students who are looking to begin a career or are in the early stages of a career in the sporting sector.

During this course, you will develop knowledge of business management and sport on local, national, international and global levels to prepare for a career in the sector. You may choose to pursue a career within governing bodies, federations, clubs, sponsors, marketing organisations, the media, local and central government or legacy and heritage organisations.

There are also ways for you to tailor your university experience to your interests. You will have opportunities to get involved with a #DMUglobal experience and choose a language study option. Amongst the global opportunities within the Sport Heritage module students will visit historical sport sites, such as the Munich Olympic Park, the Garmisch-Partenkirchen ski jump, and Allianz Arena in Germany.

In addition, as well as gaining experience working directly within a sport organisation, you will also have the opportunity to complete an Executive Company Project, Entrepreneurship Project or a Creative Research Project. With an Executive Company Project you will also have the opportunity to get involved with global engagement with international companies.
