Abertay University has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Whether it be high-performance sports at the Olympics or World Cup, or the development of sport, exercise and physical activity as part of grassroots and community initiatives, the role of management is becoming increasingly important to support these areas. Benefit from two teams of experts - Abertay University's Business School and the Division of Sport and Exercise Sciences. Work across disciplines and engage with students studying both Management and Sport and Exercise, gaining a unique view of these industries and developing an excellent knowledge base. Have opportunities to engage in work placements, make contacts, gain experience and develop your professional portfolio and employability above and beyond your degree. Work on projects and develop skills that align with the needs of Sports' National Governing Bodies and other organisations to stand out from the crown when applying for jobs.
Core modules - Social Science for Sport & Exercise; Psychology for Physical Activity & Health; Social Science of Physical Activity & Health; The Nature of Management; Managing Ideas & People; Business Analytics; Project Management; Operations & Supply Chain Management; Future of Work; Practice-Based Innovation; Managing Transformational Change and Sports Work Placement. Other modules that may be offered (subject to change over time) - Research Methods; Coaching & Learning and Managing Sports Policy & Development.
The course involves lectures, small group seminars, activity based practicals and private study. You will spend around 18 hours per week attending classes and, in addition, you will be required to undertake an average of 20 hours of private study a week. You will also be expected to undertake work placements, which will help reinforce the important link between theory and practice. The course is assessed by a combination of examination and coursework. Some modules will involve both practical and work-based assessment. The range of skills you acquire during the course help you develop a comprehensive understanding of the component disciplines of your degree.
