Course content

The MSc Sports Management has been developed to provide a thorough sports management grounding for those who are excited by the new career paths opening up in the expanding field of sport management and sport business. The programme is intended for those who have a background in business or management studies, but who wish to follow a professional career in the sports sector. It is also for those who have an academic background in sport, for example in sports science, but who wish to understand sports business and management. Those already employed in the sector but who wish to advance their career through part-time study, are also welcome. The programme has a strong theoretical base in business and management studies but this is always combined with practical applications to the needs of sports organisations.
