You'll develop a higher level understanding of management principles and their application to the sport industry. This will allow you to advance your knowledge of the processes by which sport has become a global phenomenon within the wider service and entertainment industry, the subsequent tensions that have emerged, and the implications for the future development and management of sport. This course is taught by our team of research-active experts, who regularly offer advice to organisations in the sport management sector.
