This undergraduate programme not only allows students to enhance their employability skills in the context of the sport industry, but to also gain an understanding across core business and management functions. This industry-focussed BSc programme will help to enhance your CV, build professional experiences and develop your industry skills. This course is taught at our University of Salford campus close to Manchester city centre. Sport is at the heart of all that is Greater Manchester. It influences and impacts on many business sectors along with providing world class facilities and sporting venues that deliver a superior experience for any sports consumer. Of all the cultural, historical and industrial impacts Greater Manchester has had on the world, it is sport that has really put the region on the map in many different ways and across different sporting disciplines. With expertise in sports event management, marketing and digital technologies, globalisation and sport media, Salford Business School’s reputation for sports teaching, research and knowledge development is reflective of a region that is home to two of the most valuable and recognised football clubs in the world. Our close partnerships with a number of sports organisations (for example, Manchester City FC, Salford Red Devils, Super League, Salford City FC and Manchester Storm) connected to our experienced and passionate programme team ensures that our curriculum meets the current needs of global employers and that you receive fantastic opportunities for real world assessments, networking and work placements. We have worked with industry partners to make sure the programme is highly practical, career-focused and industry-informed to prepare you for a successful management career. We are proud to work with our student panel to ensure our teaching is relevant, inclusive and respectful for all. This course is available with a Professional Experience Year, giving you the opportunity to apply the skills, knowledge and understanding you have gained in the first two years of the course. If you choose to take the professional year option, you will not pay fees to the University and will earn a wage for the work that you do.
