Modules

This module examines the internal governance structures of sport organisations and in particular, the board of the organisation. The board is, in principle, the key internal governance mechanism of an organisation and this module will introduce a range of key issues faced by boards of sport organisations and identify challenges that they face. Critically, it will consider whether the governance structures are appropriate to enable sport organisations to carry out their core management and regulatory functions.
