If you have ambitious sports management dreams such as being involved in major sport leagues, global sports branding or international sporting events, this course could help you realise those dreams, as it has for our previous graduates.
We take an innovative approach to the advanced study of sports management, from the sub-disciplines of HRM, marketing, finance and strategy, to their application via global sports organisations and events. You will learn adaptability, creative capacity and a solutions-focused approach.
We will connect you directly to networks of international, national and regional sport. The international reputation of this course means you are provided with privileged access to key decision-makers in the sports world. We offer unique opportunities, such as an international field visit which, in previous years, has been to Lausanne, Switzerland – home of the International Olympic Committee and many of the world’s international sport federations.
Modules covered on the course include: The Sport Marketing Process; International Resource Management in Sport; Strategic Management for Sport; International Sport Event Management; and The Research Process.
Our assessments are based on the types of tasks that sports managers are required to perform, such as writing reports, making presentations, evaluating information, financial analysis and developing strategic plans. You will undertake an applied research project to complete your Masters.
All students have the support of a guidance tutor and will meet with them regularly throughout the course to help with personal and professional issues that arise.
