Summary

Sport business is a £multi-billion, competitive global industry, and it’s growing. The demand has never been higher for professionals with a grounding in governance, commercial acumen and leadership skills.

If you’re an ex-player or sports management professional, we’ll give you the business skills to reach your full potential. This course will suit you if you’re looking to progress your career or move to the sporting world from business.

**Building strategic skills**

Our course is the first of its kind and paves the way for future leaders of sport. Studying part time over two years, you’ll develop the expertise to meet the demand of leading sporting organisations.

You’ll cover topics such as sports leadership and personal development, innovation and change, governance and best practice. A real highlight is the study of neuroscience and how it impacts on leadership and performance.

We’ll also expose you to a range of sporting environments. You’ll share knowledge with peers from different backgrounds, and apply new knowledge in your own specialism.

In your second year, you’ll apply your skills to a dissertation. We’ll challenge you to identify, research and strategically analyse a managerial or business issue within your organisation or in an area of your own interest.
