The rapid globalisation of the sports market, the influence of technology on product research and development and new business models, foreign direct investment in the sports industry supply chain, and the provision of sport related goods and services for increasingly sophisticated and diverse market segments are all contributing to the continued growth of the sports industry.

Rapid growth in the volume and variety of sports publications, sports-related internet sites, and enhanced mass media exposure of sports events and activities is resulting in an increase in the need for individuals with a knowledge of sport communications/media.

Global industrialisation, urbanisation and lifestyle and demographic changes mean that governments and public agencies worldwide are likely to increasingly use sport as a tool for social policy and economic and social development. The management and administration of these programmes and interventions require specific knowledge and management skills.

These developments ensure that the sports industry continues to be a significant and diverse industry in the future, sustaining exciting and satisfying career opportunities for years to come. On this course you gain:
-Employability skills through initiatives like our SHU leadership award to give you the edge in the jobs market.
-A well-developed international/global perspective on the sports industry.
-The conceptual abilities to make sense of complexity and identify innovative and creative solutions.

It is suitable for you if:
-You have a sport or business and management related degree.
-You have management experience and an interest in sport or leisure.

The course builds on existing study or industry experience to develop the knowledge and skills required for personal and professional development. It equips you for a career in sport management by giving you an in-depth understanding of core aspects of business and finance and building soft skills such as leadership and team working, all underpinned by the latest research in sport management.

Your studies are made up of eight assessed modules, which include an industry-based research project in which you work with sport organisations to develop solutions to problems or explore potential market opportunities. Recent clients include: Manchester City FC; The International Cricket Council; The Singapore Sports Council; Badminton England; UFC (Ultimate Fight Championship); Sheffield United FC; Sheffield Wednesday FC.

You also have the option to complete a 12 week work placement, where you receive support and advice from a placement mentor. We use our network of local, regional, national and international employers to help secure you a challenging and fulfilling placement. Our teaching team includes staff with substantial industry, research and consultancy experience, many of whom work in the University’s internationally renowned Sport Industry Research Centre.

The course emphasises business awareness, proactive and logical thinking, research and critical analysis to help managers make sound strategic financial decisions on a global scale. A distinctive course feature is its focus on present-day national and global developments in business strategy, management, accounting and finance.

By studying updated literature, worldwide events, case studies and companies’ financial accounts, you learn how real organisations operate and the strategies and decisions they implement. You complete in-depth research into various industries when producing presentations, coursework, assessments and dissertations. This real world focus provides immediate value to your present or potential employers.

Helping an organisation compete more successfully through better strategy and financial management can be a rewarding career, in the UK or internationally. The team delivering the course has strong links with the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) and Association of Corporate Treasurers (ACT).

“My overall assessment of the Pre-MBA course is highly positive. The teaching is of a high quality and there is a good professional background link between theory and practice.”

Ms Claudia Loyola (Chile)
