Sports Business and Entrepreneurship - University of the West of England

BA(Hons) Sports, Business and Entrepreneurship is a radically different degree for those looking to study entrepreneurship in a leading sports business environment. If you love sport, and want to learn more about setting up and running your own projects and ventures, this course is ideal. You'll be based at the Bristol City Football ground at Ashton Gate, with access to the stadium's impressive facilities, staff, coaching and networking. Inspired by the pioneering Finnish 'Team Academy' approach, UWE Bristol was among the first to introduce this type of course to the UK. It's particularly relevant if you're looking for a practical, hands-on approach, and the chance to take charge of your own studies. In the first few weeks you'll form a team company of up to 20 students, and work on real projects, with support from leading experts at the club and Bristol City Community Trust. Based in your own office environment at Ashton Gate, you'll attend meetings, manage budgets and build useful skills and contacts. You'll gain first-hand insight into how a leading sports business operates, and get to address real challenges and pursue your own ventures, with the possibility of earning your own income alongside gaining valuable experience. Your team company will run its own training sessions with support from an experienced team coach. You'll also have access to mentors and other professionals at the club, as well as internship opportunities, workshops and personal development sessions to develop your ideas and potential.
