Course summary

Overview The course has been designed to reflect the constantly evolving landscape in sport policy and provision from a national and international context. It explores the sport delivery environment in ways that is both intellectually and creatively challenging to enable you to understand the complex partnerships and interactions which create sport programmes and initiatives across all the sectors in sport. Sport businesses are a growing and dynamic sector of the global economy. These range from the familiar sport facility manager, to the growing number of small, niche sport tourism operators who cater for the needs of travellers wanting to experience various sporting events that take place around the world.
