Students study the following modules: Economics of Sport and the Olympics; Governance, Policy and the Olympic Movement; Research Paradigms in Sports Management; Business of Sport and the Olympics; Sports Marketing and Communications. The course comprises 39 weeks (3 semesters) and culminates in a graduate qualification paper (thesis).
