Please note the first intake for this course is September 2022.

Our Sport Management programme is designed to enable you to appreciate and evaluate sport, as a global business, from an informed and inquisitive managerial viewpoint. At every level of study, you will develop vocationally relevant experience and skills; such as event management, strategic and economic planning, social media management, and sport marketing. You will also develop transferable skills in areas such as; communication, negotiation, teamwork, leadership, and problem-solving.

Would you like to be a sport manager for the Olympic Organising Committee, a partnership manager at Chelsea FC, a key account executive at Nike, a marketing manager at Tottenham Hotspur FC, or perhaps manage a global events management company?

These are just some of the professional careers our recent graduates have chosen. The sport industry has changed significantly in recent years but it continues to be dynamic and innovative, creating challenges and well-paid career opportunities for knowledgeable sport managers.

If you’d like to study sport management in a supportive and enjoyable environment whilst preparing for an exciting career in a global multi-million pound industry then the Northumbria University BSc (Hons) Sport Management is the degree for you.

88% of students said that the course has provided them with opportunities to explore ideas or concepts in depth (NSS, 2019).

Our programme of study responds to the distinctive needs of international sports organisations. Therefore, the programme has been designed from the outset as a sport management degree, rather than a business degree with a few sport modules attached. Learning in this sport rich environment provides numerous opportunities for you to engage in CPD, volunteering, access a variety of sports networks, and to undertake a placement with a local sport organisation – alternatively, you may choose to complete your placement with an international partner.

Due to our unique learning and teaching experience, you will graduate from our degree programme with a rounded knowledge of specific and transferable management skills, which are desirable to a variety of graduate-level employers.
