Summary

Sport is part of Manchester’s DNA. It’s a big feature of the city’s history, character and economy – it’s also a big part of Manchester Met.

As one of few management courses in the UK focusing solely on sports, we cover topics including sport policy, marketing and business management.

Unlike other courses in the country, you’ll also explore areas such as politics, finance and law to understand how they apply to the sports industry.
