Sport is one of the most popular activities on Earth, and professional athletes are supported by extensive teams of coaches, managers, and other professionals. These support functions require a combination of financial understanding, administrative expertise, and a close familiarity with the sport on question. Various universities cater to this demand by providing courses specifically in Sports Management, that combine modules in all of these key competencies. An MSc in Sports Management is a specialist course designed to prepare students of a career supporting the Sports industry – it can be thought of as a sector-specific equivalent of an MBA. These courses are designed to appeal to professionals who already work within sector, as well as people with an undergraduate background in Sports Science or another discipline.
