This course is designed to train you for a career in sports business management. From coaching and managing athletes themselves, to overseeing operational aspects of commercial sports enterprises, we’ll give you a broad understanding of the industry. You’ll explore different techniques for analysing performance and sharpen your athlete development and business skills. Many coaches in this industry are self-employed and through this course you’ll learn entrepreneurship and business planning too.

A rapidly changing industry

As traditional job roles within the sports business are changing, so too have the lines between coaching and management. This degree will give you experience and a deep understanding of the industry and help you to develop specific management skills relative to sports.

You’ll learn the fundamentals of coaching, looking into health and safety, risk assessment, and get to know the ‘coaches toolkit’. You’ll spend time focusing on how different organisations in sport are structured and explore consumer behaviour in this industry.

Athlete analysis and development

We’ll look at athlete development and analysis, spending time in our human performance laboratory. You’ll explore both traditional and advanced technologies in your approach and become well versed in the various tools that are available in this field.
