Postgraduate Certificate in International Sports Management
Why study the PGCert in International Sports Management?
The PGCert in International Sports Management aims to provide students with an in-depth understanding of the latest sport management strategies and develop the skills needed for the professional management of organisations and projects within the dynamic sport industry.
Upon completion of the programme, you will be able to:
- Critically engage with and apply a range of management functions including strategic planning, marketing, finance and events and facilities management.
- Plan and undertake systematic research into sport-related business and management issues, making selective and critical use of a range of business data, research sources and appropriate methodologies.
- Take a critical international and professional perspective that is demonstrably informed by knowledge and expertise in issues including the relations between sport and businesses, societies and the environment.
How you study
The PGCert in International Sports Management consists of four modules (two core moules and two elective modules).
All modules are also available to be studied on an individual basis. You can apply to take up to three modules (subject to availability) on a stand-alone basis without being registered for the PGCert. If you then successfully apply to progress to the PGCert, you will be credited with any individual modules completed within three years of your registration.
The programme is delivered online and there is no requirement to come to the UK as part of your studies. Our flexible online programme allows you to work around your own schedule and leads to a globally recognised, academically-sound and industry focused qualification that is highly valued by sports organisations.
All essential resources, activities, videos, discussions and support are provided through the VLE. This allows you to fit your studies around your work commitments.
The flexible approach to learning allows students to complete the PGCert in a minimum of one academic year to a maximum of five years.
