When you graduate, you will possess knowledge, understanding and competencies that will enable you to take advantage of the new employment opportunities that are arising in this dynamic and vibrant business environment. Employability: Graduates from this programme are well prepared for careers in sports management, marketing and events with national governing bodies of sport, local authorities or other similar organisations. Typical vocational destinations include sport business roles in a range of public, private and not-for-profit organisations. This course is also a prerequisite qualification for a range of postgraduate courses within the sports and leisure industry. Employability is an integral component of the sports marketing and management programme. It allows you to access experiences that cannot be offered within the lecture theatre. You have multiple opportunities to undertake a series of volunteer internships on this degree. When we speak to employers in the sports industry, they underline the importance of a good degree, but also place huge emphasis on relevant experience and evidence of transferable skills. Therefore, the volunteer internships are an opportunity for you to apply taught content to the workplace, and also provide an opportunity for you to gain exposure to the industry and network with potential employers throughout your time studying the programme.
