Of all the cultural, historical and industrial impacts Greater Manchester has had on the world, it is sport that has really put the region on the map. With a record of expertise in sports analytics, marketing and economics, Salford Business School’s reputation for sports research and knowledge is befitting of a region that is home to two of the most valuable football clubs in the world. With an industry-informed curriculum that combines business management and sports modules, this programme gives passionate and ambitious individuals the skills, knowledge and industry experience necessary for a managerial career in the sports industry. At Salford Business School, industry is at the heart of everything we do. By maintaining close partnerships with a number of sports organisations through our Centre for Sports Business, we ensure that our curriculum meets the current needs of employers and that you receive fantastic opportunities for networking and work placements. This course is also available with a Professional Experience Year, giving you the opportunity to apply the skills, knowledge and understanding you have gained in the first two years of the course. If you choose to take the professional year option, you will not pay fees to the University and will earn a wage for the work that you do. There are different entry requirements and course codes for the Professional Experience Year option. This degree is also offered with a Foundation Year.
