Course summary

The Cricket Management Postgraduate Certificate is an interdisciplinary programme focusing on cricket’s ethics, governance, diversity, history and heritage, and as a new Olympic sport, its political, social, economic, and cultural contexts. It includes specific elements relating to the socio-cultural role of cricket in order to help students develop a critical perspective on their management work. The programme considers cricket at the local, national, international and global levels, and is suitable for those already working or aspiring to work in cricket.
