Looking to pursue a new and exciting career in football? Already employed in a sporting role and want to take on a more senior position? Southampton Solent’s challenging, industry-focused football, development and business management master’s programme will help you gain an understanding of the football industry and enhance the skills required to gain employment and progress your career within a football context.

Through exposure to theory and practice at local, national and international level, you’ll develop a critical understanding of the football industry and its core business principles. You’ll also gain an understanding of how business and management principles can be applied to the football industry, and how football also represents a unique market with its own economic and cultural makeup.

You’ll examine the responsibilities and challenges associated with football business professionals, organisations, agencies and governing bodies, while developing a critical understanding of the political and economic climate in which football clubs operate, and the correlation between football and politics, policy and development. You’ll also have the opportunity to gain a deep insight into international sport marketing and management theory and practice, learning from professionals working in related industries.

Additionally, you’ll develop your critical knowledge of football governance across a variety of areas. This includes the operational management of national and transnational leagues, competitions, and international events. The growing scale and significance of sports ‘mega events’ means there is an increased requirement for those working within the industry to understand the impact of the expenditure of public and private resources on connected developments in infrastructure, architecture, transport and tourism.

A key element of the course curriculum is the research paper, and you’ll be supported in developing your understanding of the postgraduate research process, as well as the theoretical and procedural requirements of critical investigation. You will learn how to apply this knowledge to an area of in-depth individual study that interests you and is relevant for your chosen career development ambition.

What does this course lead to?

This course will enable you to gain a critical understanding of the football industry and the sustained and emergent roles which may interest you, such as dedicated commercial managers and marketing professionals in football clubs. Graduates from our football programmes have gone on to work at Premier and Football League clubs, as well as other related associations.

Who is this course for?

This master’s programme is ideal for candidates who are passionate about football and are currently working in a commercial- or marketing-related role wanting to move into the football industry, or those already working in the football industry looking to advance their career and pursue senior roles with business focus.

Teaching And Assessment

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.

In recent years, we have offered a field trip to Lausanne, Switzerland, home of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), numerous international sport federations, and many other leading agencies in international sport. During this trip, which we believe is unique in the sector, students meet with representatives from these top-level international agencies to learn about current issues in international sport management.

Northumbria is ranked in the top 30 for excellence in sport and exercise science research power, according to REF 2014, making it the best rated university in the North East in this discipline.

Your research skills will be developed via a reflective research portfolio in semester 1. In semester 2 you will choose the focus of your dissertation study and will be encouraged to create new knowledge that can help to inform the academic and/or professional communities of international sport management.

Immersion in academic literature is a central tenet of the course, balanced with an applied professional focus. The exploration of sport management issues and debates with an international theme enhance the course’s depth and breadth of insight and critical evaluation.

Staff are actively researching a range of topics in the field including branding and consumer culture, volunteer management, organisational evolution in sport, and fan behaviour and emerging digital technologies at live sporting events.

Sport attracts the very best managers, and throughout this course you will acquire and apply the knowledge and skills required by the international sport industry and the wider management professions.

Employability is embedded into this course through industry engagement opportunities, presentations by guest speakers, visits to sports venues and events and by participating in the international field visit.

Course details

The overall aim of the programme is to enable exploration of the theoretical basis of exercise and sports medicine in general and football in particular, and its application to the development of a physiotherapist's and doctor's clinical reasoning. Using the process of clinical reasoning as its framework, the programme will integrate the key issues central to practice in this specialist area, including: clinical assessment, communication skills, accurate diagnosis, differential diagnosis, diagnostics and prognostics, treatment interventions, management approaches, best evidence, evaluation of outcome, strategies to reduce injury time etc.

The programme will facilitate the evaluation of existing evidence through the exploration of the assessment and management of athletes. It will provide students with the opportunity to tailor their learning experience to meet their personal and professional needs, developing their their capacity for leadership within a multidisciplinary team providing clinical management in football. The programme will promote enquiry based learning through a range of strategies including case analysis and problem based learning.

The programme is written in line with the international competencies and standards established by the International Federation of Sports Physiotherapists and the Specialty Training Curriculum for Sports and Exercise Medicine from the Joint Royal Colleges of Physicians Training Board, and in collaboration with The Football Association and physiotherapists and doctors working within football and other sporting contexts.
