Course summary

The Sport Management Degree will enable you to develop the critical understanding, professional knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to take up a managerial position in the ever expanding sport and activity industry. This could be in leadership roles associated with researching the contemporary issues and challenges associated with modern sport; developing and delivering community sport and activity; developing and managing appropriate structures and environments for elite sport and also the governance and administration of sport at a national and international level, in the modern era.An essential component of being able to achieve this will be through gaining an understanding of how sport is run from a global perspective and an appreciation of the sport consumer as both a fan and a participant. You will also be afforded the opportunity to explore a wide range of management areas associated with making sport happen. These include finance, human resources, operations, events, media, communications and marketing.We help you to understand and establish the guiding principles of what it means to be a manager in the industry today. Concepts such as quality, strategy and policy will be explored alongside your own personal and professional development; this will be through a sporting context but delivered in manner that will enable you to transfer your knowledge and skills into other sectors.
