This new and unique Thoroughbred Horseracing Industries MBA is the only masters-level qualification in the world to be delivered through an exclusive partnership with Britain’s Horserace Betting Levy Board and the British Horseracing Authority. Although UK based, our partners will provide access to the Thoroughbred Horseracing Industry across the globe. In addition, they will provide a number of scholarships for eligible students. The programme combines the Management School’s expertise in sports industry management, with the specialist equine knowledge of the University’s School of Veterinary Science.

As an MBA programme it has the real business focus that management positions in modern horseracing demand. This is based on links with key sectors of the industry—from owners, trainers, leading racecourses and the media, to the gambling industry. If you’re looking to develop your skills as an effective manager and potential leader in the global horseracing industry, this is the MBA for you. The core elements of the programme – leadership, strategy, managing the environment, innovation, managing financial resources – are delivered in concentrated blocks to encourage a deeper understanding, with a strong emphasis on interactive teaching and learning.

The specialist modules apply business concepts to modern horseracing. You’ll gain a critical awareness of issues in the management of racecourses and training establishments, marketing, advertising, sponsorship, bloodstock management and relevant veterinary issues. Crucially, you’ll receive vocational training for and invaluable placements within the industry.

MBA survey buttonYou can also benefit from the guest speakers and practical learning opportunities including visits to racecourses, studs, training facilities, media companies and companies in the gambling industry. The broader skills you’ll acquire include analysis, problem solving, creativity and decision-making. The Becoming a Horseracing Industries Executive module will also serve to strengthen and hone your interpersonal, communication and leadership abilities – all of which will prepare you for success within the industry.

Theory, we believe, has most value when it can be explored in practice, which is why live case studies and simulations are central to teaching and learning. You’ll also have a range of opportunities to work on real projects for sponsoring organisations through work based projects and placements provided by our industry partners.‌
