Key features of MA in Sports Ethics and Integrity

The world of sport is increasingly beset by ethical problems, from corruption and match fixing to doping and illegal betting. College of Engineering offers an MA in Sports Ethics and Integrity.

The integrity of sporting bodies and organisations at every level is being brought into question, creating an urgent need to develop a coherent, professional response to these issues.

The MSc Sport Management course is designed for aspiring graduates who wish to develop a career in the sports industry, focusing on the business of sport.

The course aims to equip you with the essential academic knowledge in business and management alongside the personal skills which are applicable to all industries and the more specific knowledge of the sports industry which will help you launch your career.

The course is regularly ranked within the top courses of its kind worldwide and thus should provide applicants with an assurance as to the relevance and value of its content.

The course has an excellent track record of success, its graduates occupy managerial positions across a number of organisations both locally and internationally and as such it is a much sought after qualification.

About

The course was introduced to meet an increasing demand from students and employers who recognise the need for highly skilled managers in the area of sport. It aims to give students an introduction to the key areas of business, management and sports management which are essential to build a successful career in the sports industry.

The course combines the expertise of two of the University’s Schools: the Ulster University Business School and the Ulster University School of Sport, and is suitable for aspiring graduates from any academic discipline.

This MSc is designed for those who recognise the need to progress their academic study in order to embark on a successful career in sports management. The modules on the course offer a comprehensive introduction to the essential areas of business and management.

During the course, guest speakers are invited in to talk to students about how business and management theory is applied in various organisations. Students will also be invited to attend business and networking events, providing an opportunity for them to build up their network of contacts.

The modules on the MSc course will provide students with a thorough grounding in business and management principles. In semester 3, two modules are studied and students are then required to complete their Internship and associated Management Project.

The modules are intended to provide students with a thorough grounding in the business of sport along with the management principles and opportunities to develop and apply management related skills.

Attendance

The MSc Sport Management course is offered on both a full-time and part-time basis. The full-time route has a one year duration and the part-time route is studied over two years, both starting in the Autumn Semester (September).

The modules on the course will provide students with a thorough grounding in general business and management principles as well as the specifics relating to the area of sports management. Students begin the course by studying towards the Postgraduate Diploma. On successful completion of this they progress onto the full Master's qualification.

Work placement / study abroad

An internship forms an essential part of this course. Students work alongside an employer in semester 3 which allows them to gain some good work experience to further apply and contextualise skill sand develop their CVs. This internship also forms the basis of the final assessment on the course - the Management Project.

Students have worked in local sport goods manufacturers and clothing organisations such as Ecco and Adidas as well as with sports clubs, teams and organisations such as the Belfast Giants, Ulster Rugby and the IFA.

Career options

There are a variety of careers available to graduates of the course. Many students take up roles within the sports industry, for example in consultancy, marketing or administration. Other graduates have made use of the more generic business and management skills that are taught on the course to gain employment with organisations such as Apple.

Many students use the opportunity of their internship to build links with employers. Over the past few years students have worked for organisations such as the Belfast Giants, Ulster Sports Academy, Sport Ireland, Adidas, Ecco and the IFA, for example.

This exciting course analyses and evaluates the commercial and management forces that have contributed to the success of sport business. It offers flexibility with an innovative combination of block and online delivery, making it suitable for those working in the sports sector and recent graduates who are looking to develop their knowledge and understanding of this fast growing and important industry.

Spectator and participatory sport is a global phenomenon and has recently become one of the fastest growing economic sectors for both developed and developing countries. Through engaging with and analysing the commercial, media and political drivers of change, you are able to identify the factors that have created such growth and critically discuss the implications for business, society, nation branding and identity.

Sport is a sophisticated and complex international business with billions of consumers watching and engaging with sporting events on a weekly or even daily basis. This course aims to develop professionals in the provision, promotion and marketing of sport who are able to fully capitalise on the opportunities that the sector presents.

Through studying marketing, sponsorship, media and law – and after spending time in a sports organisation on a professional work placement – you gain academic understanding and practical knowledge of the issues involved in successful sport business management. This will help you to engage, manage and shape the sport businesses of the future.

This course can only be studied with our partner in The Netherlands, the Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences. The course is taught in English and delivered by academics from both the University of Brighton and the Wittenborg University of Applied sciences.

Course structure

You will experience a dynamic blend of academic study, research and – through the placement module – hands-on learning. The combination of academic study and practical analysis has been designed to provide greater depth of knowledge and future career success.

Course delivery:

The emphasis of the course is on using a theoretical approach to analyse and evaluate the Sport Business sector. If you are already working in the sector you’ll be able to use your existing knowledge to underpin your studies, whilst if you are a recent graduate there is the opportunity for more supported learning.

All core modules are taught in intensive blocks of two to three days. Depending on the module this could include a combination of university-based teaching, online seminars, tutorial support and webinars. The Professional Enquiry module is a combination of teaching and online tutorials which will support you during an organisational experience or project. Some optional modules will be delivered entirely online and others will be all classroom based.

The flexibility of the teaching method for the Sport Business Management MSc facilitates combining studying for a masters with a professional career. It also means that your commitment to attending the university’s campus may be different from others studying the same course.

Syllabus

A distinctive feature of the course is the flexibility and choice of your final project. Guided and supported by your personal supervisor, you have several options available to you. Whether an academic dissertation or an applied piece of research, such as a business or enterprise project, the final project allows you to pursue an area of particular interest and helps you to build knowledge and skills for your future career.

The course will address contemporary issues recognised as the major challenges and opportunities for sport business management. This includes researching the complex relationships between sports business and governing bodies, pressure groups and government agencies, and analysing the mechanisms by which sport generates revenue through TV and media rights, gate receipts, sponsorship and merchandise.

Core management studies involving strategy, marketing, sponsorship, operations management, finance, law and human resources are integrated within various compulsory modules that make up the core of the course. You can study areas of personal interest through two optional modules.

Modules:

Strategic Sport Business Management
Marketing and Sponsorship for Sports and Events
