Module abstract

From the Olympic Games through to charity fun-runs, sport events have become vehicles for political advancement, economic regeneration, national or regional pride, social integration, community action, health promotion and, of course, sporting excellence … not to mention bribery, corruption, doping, cheating and illegal gambling. This module aims to develop a critical appreciation of the knowledge, techniques, skills and values used to plan, organise, lead, control and evaluate international sports events. You will learn from experts in the sport event industry, and will hear about, question, debate and observe issues related to the management of major sport events. You will explore the event planning process, examine the economic, environmental and socio-cultural impacts of major events, and consider legal aspects of event management. At the end of this module it is hoped that you will want to work in the sport event industry.
