This programme introduces you to issues of governance and regulation and how they apply in the sport industry. It provides you with a thorough introduction to theoretical issues in corporate governance and sport economics, and links these to the governance and regulation of sport in practice.

The programme is ideally suited to the needs of executives within football clubs and media organisations, officers of football and sport regulatory bodies, members of supporters' organisations and local government officials with responsibilities in the leisure field. It will also appeal to those with a general interest in the sport, football and media industries.
