Why study Abertay's BA (Hons) in Sport and Management?
Keen to uncover what makes sport tick? Interested in the principles of management? Ready to explore the relationship between the two? This degree gives you the best of both worlds, making you a highly desirable candidate for high-level sports clubs seeking business-savvy graduates.
This degree prepares you for a management career in sports, equipping you with the skills required to manage sporting facilities, including financial, human resource, sporting expertise, marketing and service operations.
It’s designed to give you an understanding of the management, social and practical skills required in the burgeoning sports industry, with a focus on social policy, ethics and the philosophy of sport, as well as the context of business and management of services, people, and the sporting environment.
Work placements are a key feature of this programme, and employability is embedded throughout the programme. Some of our students have previously undertaken work placements within national governing bodies and with Dundee Stars, the city’s Elite Ice Hockey League team.
Practical activities and work placements will enable you to contextualise theory to real-life applications, and work towards NGB or industry qualifications.
