Sport is becoming an increasingly global industry, so during your studies you will be exposed to the sports industry in different countries and cultures.
We have global partners in the United States, Brazil, Russia, Europe, Dubai, Qatar, China and Australia, which provide exciting opportunities for volunteering abroad. For example, we have taken students to work at the Rugby World Sevens tournament in Moscow and Going Global Conferences in Dubai, Miami and Cape Town.
Throughout the course, we consider sport management within an international context, drawing on case studies from throughout the world, such as the FIFA scandal, management of International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF), doping In world cycling, Chinese investment into British sport and the global interest in sport and foreign sponsorship deals.
You'll have opportunities to visit international sport venues, which have previously included Croke Park and Aviva Stadium in Dublin, Nanjing Olympic Sports Centre (China), Luzhnlki Stadium (Russia), Dubai International Stadium. We will also organise international speakers from organisations such as Adidas and the International Cricket Council.
