Course content

Sport is one of the largest industries across the globe, and an industry that connects people at local, national, and international levels.

This postgraduate degree has been designed to examine critically the business decisions that shape this lucrative global industry.

From the outset, the programme focuses on the international business management of the sports sector, and explores the culture, policy, impact, and delivery of sporting opportunities. It aims to develop students’ skills for the critical analysis of sport, sport spaces, products, services, and operations.

The programme can help to empower students to be critical thinkers in the global world of sports business in order to lead and develop industry practices and processes in responsible and strategically mindful ways.

Students have the opportunity to explore the challenges facing sports leaders and sports managers across the globe, including the aspects of innovative value creation, strategic leadership, management, finance, equality, and sustainability.

By developing the specialist knowledge and skills required, we aim for our postgraduate students to become globally prepared managers and leaders within an ever-changing society.

The course is offered with two separate pathways. Students can either complete one year of study, or undertake a two-year course where one year is spent in Professional Practice to gain hands-on experience through a paid placement. Students will be responsible for sourcing their own paid placements but will be supported by academic staff.
