Course Summary

The MSc in Sports Directorship will be delivered in a blended format over two years enabling students to study in a manner and place best suited to their working lives. Completing this course will enable you to feel confident that you will be a successful Sporting Director and it will also position you to move into a variety of senior roles in sporting organisations. You will gain the confidence to interact at any level across any business in the sector. Throughout the course you will learn about the modern sports environment where such innovations around analytics and its interface with traditional managerial activities are changing the face of what is, and what will increasingly be, required of Sports Directors.

The sporting and leisure sector is recognised as one of the few sectors guaranteed to grow over the next 10 years. Careers and/or jobs with Sporting organisations and associated businesses will continue to grow with the industry as a whole. These can range from coaching directors to commercial directors; essentially the sports industry is catching up with all other business sectors and in doing so are providing the same roles and titles but in a more exciting environment.
