We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Sport Management equip postgraduates with a working knowledge of management principles and practices in sporting and leisure industries.
Programmes are typically taught MSc courses, though research oriented MRes degrees may also be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Sports or Business Studies.
Whether you want to manage an individual, a team or a whole sporting organisation, you will need the managerial expertise to do so effectively. In undertaking a Masters in this field, you will build your leadership skills and business acumen in keeping with a rapidly developing environment.
In particular, you will gain an understanding of the corporate governance involved in all sporting activities, from regulation and quality standards, through to strategic management and international development.
You will receive training in sporting economics, particularly financial management, marketing strategies and commercialisation. Most courses will offer the opportunity for you to increase your professional expertise through an industrial placement.
Alongside positions within national and international sports federations, your experience would also make you suitable for roles in education, consultancy for sports agencies, and the media.
