INSTITUTE FOR SPORT BUSINESS
This programme is designed for individuals who wish to improve their impact and effectiveness in leading and managing individuals, teams, and organisations within the sport business industry. Students will immerse themselves in the business of sport, enhancing their leadership capacity and business acumen in relation to the complex and rapidly emerging global sport business environment.
The programme recognises that contemporary leadership and management are multifaceted and there is a need to draw upon numerous perspectives to have an impact in the current international sport business environment. This course is designed to introduce and bring together theories, styles and philosophies of leadership, provide an extensive understanding of business practices, and their practical application in the context of sport.
Developmental themes embedded within the programme relate to team work, sustainability, critical reflection, management development and leadership construction. This programme provides the foundation for individuals to develop their own leadership philosophy, extend their knowledge of the sport business industry, and critically reflect upon how they can be influential and effective leaders and managers in global sport. The course also provides opportunities to undertake applied research and develop leadership and management skills by helping solve real problems confronting sport businesses in the current landscape.
