Taught at our Warrington Campus, this course is designed to develop people who can lead, manage and develop sport-related operations to professional standards.

Why Study Sport Management with us?
Sport is not only a global business but also a key device in improving and developing society and bringing about change for individuals, groups and communities.

This course provides a blend of critical management theory with an understanding of sport development and leadership in a range of contexts.
At Warrington Campus we have great connections to sporting organisations, including the Warrington Wolves Rugby League club, who train on site.
