Course content

This course is designed to develop people who can lead, manage and develop sport-related operations to professional standards.

The business of sport extends throughout nations and across the globe – from merchandising to charity fundraising and leisure to societal health improvement.

Sport is not only a global business but also a key device in improving and developing society and bringing about change for individuals, groups and communities. Professional management and leadership in this field are essential to ensure that the maximum benefits are realised from sport activities, whether for commercial pursuits, competition, lifestyle or social development. This course provides a blend of critical management theory with an understanding of sport development and leadership in a range of contexts.

At Warrington Campus we have great connections to sporting organisations, including the Warrington Wolves Rugby League club, who train on site.

This course is taught by the University of Chester’s Warrington School of Management and the Department of Sports and Community Engagement located on Warrington Campus.

You will have access to contemporary practical IT suites located on Warrington Campus, including 24/7 access to the onsite library.

The course is assessed through a mixture of project work, written presentations and a research report.
