Course summary

Drawing upon the Department of Management's areas of research expertise, this programme provides a solid grounding in key aspects of business and management while allowing you to specialise through a range of option modules focusing on sport management.

The programme examines the essentials of management theory and practice and the core principles and practice of business and organisations in a local and international context. You will gain a broad knowledge and expertise in the design and implementation of strategy at different levels of the corporate organisation and of other types of organisation such as public, not-for-profit and cooperative. Specialist modules will help you to develop a deeper understanding of management, governance and regulatory issues within the business of sport.

You will then use your critical analysis and independent judgement skills to write a dissertation setting out solutions to complex managerial problems in all types of organisation.

This Master's programme differs from the typical MBA in that it covers fewer subjects but in more depth. You will learn more than just the current management fashions and buzzwords: you will also learn about the evidence upon which management theories are based.

TEACHING

Teaching may include formal lectures, seminars, and practical classes and tutorials. Formal lectures are used in most degree programmes to give an overview of a particular field of study. They aim to provide the stimulus and the starting point for deeper exploration of the subject during your own personal reading. Seminars give you the chance to explore a specific aspect of your subject in depth and to discuss and exchange ideas with fellow students. They typically require preparatory study.

CAREERS AND EMPLOYABILITY

Graduates can pursue careers in sports management and administration, education, and general management within local and national government, business and industry. Possible professions include fitness centre manager, secondary school teacher (PE), or sports development officer. This degree can also be useful in becoming a sports administrator or outdoor activities/education manager.
