The Business Management in Sport MSc is a programme that will explore the evolving and multi-faceted area of the management in sport through core modules from business and bespoke sport modules. In addition, the programme focuses on ethical considerations, major competitions, sports marketing, heritage and sport’s political, social, economic, and cultural contexts.
This course is ideal for individuals who hold a degree in sport (management, science, or other sport disciplines), event management, marketing, media, business or the humanities and are looking to begin a career or are in the early stages of a career in the sporting industry.
During this course, you will develop knowledge of sport management on local, national, international and global levels to prepare for a career in the sector.
There are also ways for you to tailor your university experience to your interests. You will have opportunities to get involved with a DMU Global experience and choose a language study option.
