University of Edinburgh
Sport Policy, Management and International Development
The programme critically examines the commercialised and mediatised world of professional sport, and the important realms of community recreation and physical activity; recognising that sport managers operate in a highly politicised environment. The programme reviews the role of government policy in shaping sporting opportunities and sport�s contribution to social policy agendas; it also examines sport�s role in peace and reconciliation, leadership development, gender empowerment and disease prevention across the world. The programme focuses on areas and issues of specific relevance to the management of sport organisations.
