Overview

Sport is now big business - changing lives, shaping communities and impacting on economies all over the world.

You could already be working in sport and looking to progress to a more senior management role, or it could be you are motivated to seek a new and exciting career and are attracted by the options sport and commerce can provide in the UK and across the globe.

We will help you gain an understanding of the industry and the business principles that underpin it, helping you turn your passion into a rewarding career.

You will have the opportunity to gain real-world experience by working with industry partners in the Enterprise, Entrepreneurship & Sport module. This includes working on projects with key University partners such as Leeds Rhinos, Yorkshire Carnegie, Bradford Bulls and Kirklees Active Leisure. Guest lectures will bring you into contact with cutting-edge practitioners and professionals in the sports industry, inspiring your learning, enhancing your networks and boosting your career prospects. The Professional Practice in Sport Business option module will provide you with the opportunity to gain further industry experience.

The PG Diploma serves as the first 120 credits of the MA in Sport Business.

Research Excellence Framework 2014
Research Excellence Framework 2014: 59% of our research submitted was assessed as world leading or internationally excellent.
This course has been designed to introduce you to the key principles and processes of sports business management, with the opportunity to customise your programme to your individual needs and career aspirations through making considered assessment choices and, also, through the negotiated focus of the Major Independent Study.

Our University has outstanding sports facilities at both the Headingley Campus and the world famous Headingley Carnegie Stadium, which is an international base for professional cricket, rugby league and rugby union teams. We enjoy fruitful partnerships with this famous sports arena, providing you with outstanding opportunities.

We understand that full-time study does not suit everyone. That’s why we offer courses which give you the opportunity to decide where, when and how you can get involved in learning. Studying a distance learning course offers the convenience and flexibility to make education work for you. Whether you’d like to fit your studies around childcare, develop your skills while working or, quite simply, want to learn from the comfort of your own home, we can help you gain a qualification at a time and pace that suits your lifestyle.

Like our students on campus, you will have the same excellent teaching and learning resources, however you’ll find these online instead of in a lecture theatre. Not only are all the modules taught online, but you will also have access to an online community and more than 140,000 books and journals in our online library.
