Sports Business Management (with Placement Year) - University of Worcester

The BA (Hons) Sport Business Management course has been designed to reflect the constantly evolving landscape in sport policy and provision from a national and international context. It explores the sport delivery environment in ways that is both intellectually and creatively challenging to enable you to understand the complex partnerships and interactions which create sport programmes and initiatives across all the sectors in sport. Sport businesses are a growing and dynamic sector of the global economy. These range from the familiar sport facility manager, to the growing number of small, niche sport tourism operators who cater for the needs of travellers wanting to experience various sporting events that take place around the world. This growth has meant that there is a healthy demand for talented professionals in this field, who can project manage and deliver high quality sport services and products. As this course focuses on key specialisms for future employability, the graduate employment rate is consistently very high. The focus on business, marketing and events provides many innovative elements within the course such as developing expertise in entrepreneurship, problem solving and risk management, alongside the key areas of project management and strategic planning skills all of which are transferrable skills into working. There is a strong element of work-based learning central to the programme which enables you to gain valuable professional work experience and will play a valuable role in enhancing your employability prospects when leaving the University. This is enhanced by the opportunity to take a sandwich year between your second and third year of study to either work in the UK or abroad. There is also the prospect of being able to undertake an international semester studying at a partner University.
