Management with Sport Management

This programme has a flexible structure, which allows you to choose to concentrate on a general background in business and management or to focus on a specialist area. Whichever you choose, the programme provides a solid grounding in key aspects in management and draws upon the Department of Management's areas of research expertise. We have particular research strengths in international business and strategy, the management of innovation and entrepreneurship, human resource management, corporate governance, sport management and marketing, as well as financial management and accounting.

Entry requirements

A professional or other qualification obtained by written examinations approved by the College. Relevant experience, supporting statements and references may be taken into consideration, especially in the case of non-standard applications. If English is not your first language or you have not previously studied in English, our usual requirement is the equivalent of an International English Language Testing System (IELTS Academic Test) score of 6.5, with not less than 6.0 in each of the sub-tests.
