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.

All core modules are taught in intensive blocks of two to three days.

From an early stage in their career, engineers need to manage project progress and finances in professional environments. Projects can become increasingly complex, often involving overseas collaboration.

You take taught modules in the autumn and spring terms, with examination periods in January and May. The project is started in the spring term and continued in summer.

There are core modules in business and management. You choose options depending on your pathway. You are assessed through reports, essays and unseen examinations.

MSc project

On our Masters courses, you’ll complete a substantial MSc project, which is often practical as well as theoretical. The project is designed for you to excel in your personal and professional development and to consolidate the material covered in your modules.

It demands individual responsibility and exposes you to issues of:
