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.
Year 1 core modules (subject to change over time) - SPS101 Social Science for Sport and Exercise; BMT101 Nature of Management; SPS104 Psychology of Exercise and Health; BMT103 Managing People and Ideas. You will also be required to select one option and one elective module. For detailed module information please check our website.
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.
