Course information

Are you ready to make a significant contribution to the dynamic global sports industry? Our Sports Business Management course has enabled graduates to step into work for a wide range of UK and international sports organisations.

Our course will develop and enhance your business management knowledge and skills. It’s completely taught within the sports context, by staff with sports management and consultancy experience.

Our strong philosophy for this programme is that it’s intellectually and academically stimulating, but also clearly focused on the vocational needs of the sports industry.

We’d like you to challenge and develop existing practices.

Further information

This course is suitable for existing sports professionals and those with an appropriate undergraduate qualification who aspire to have a career in sport business management.

The module The Sport Business and Strategic Thinking explicitly examines the global business context of sport and part of the learning in this module involves joint video linked lectures and seminars with the Volga State Sports Academy in Kazan, Russia, which held the World Student Games in 2013.

In addition, Principles and Practice of Sports Marketing incorporates international sports marketing as a key theme. You’ll be given flexibility in assessments to draw on international materials, such as case studies of global or non-UK sports brands. Depending on the availability of suitable partners, you may be able to work on live international sports marketing consultancy projects, with either UK or non-UK-based organisations.
