Course summary

BA Management, Leadership and Leisure is a unique degree that focuses on the study and development of management and leadership skills, and is taught in the context of the leisure sector.Exploring the specific leisure industries of sports, events and tourism, the course is more comprehensive than traditional leisure and management degree courses which normally focus on management in just one specific area, for example, either sport or events management.This course covers both management and leadership, and allows you to choose course units from sport, events and tourism.This flexibility allows you to either specialize in one area which you are passionate about, or to develop knowledge of all three, giving you greater choice over your future career direction.Your academic study will be supported by three applied study periods, which are similar to work placements and last two weeks in year one, four weeks in year two and ten weeks in year three.They will give you the opportunity to take the theories you have studied at university and apply them to real-life projects in the leisure industry.Previous students have enjoyed Applied Study Periods around Manchester, the UK and even further afield; in the past, students have completed their work experience in countries around the world, including:- Australia;- Indonesia;- Thailand;- Korea;- Barbados;- the Netherlands;- Romania.Students who have chosen to stay in Manchester for their Applied Study Periods have spent time gaining professional experience at:- Manchester United Football Club;- Ear to the Ground (marketing agency);- On the Beach;- Invasion;- Manchester Marriott Victoria and Albert Hotel;- the Co-operative.
