MSc Sport Business, Management and Policy
As the sporting sector expands, new commercial opportunities are opening globally for those with the drive, passion and knowledge to succeed.
Our online course has been designed with the University’s Sports Advisory Board, made up of key sports industry experts, to ensure you graduate with the skills and knowledge needed by leading sports employers.
During your studies you will cover everything from sport policy and sports marketing to data analytics, and unlike some courses, you will also explore areas such as politics, finance and law to understand how they apply to the sports industry and give you the confidence you need to take your career to the next level.
You will learn from research-active academics who hold strong connections with UK Sport, FIFA, the International Olympic Committee, Rugby Football Union, the organising committee for the Qatar 2022 World Cup and more.
