This Sport and Management (Hons) degree at Abertay University prepares you for a management career in sports, equipping you with the skills required to manage sporting facilities, including financial, human resource, sporting expertise, marketing and service operations.
It’s designed to give you an understanding of the management, social and practical skills required in the burgeoning sports industry, with a focus on social policy, ethics and the philosophy of sport, as well as the context of business and management of services, people, and the sporting environment.
Work placements are a key feature of this programme, and employability is embedded throughout the programme. Some of our students have previously undertaken work placements within national governing bodies and with Dundee Stars, the city’s Elite Ice Hockey League team.
Practical activities and work placements will enable you to contextualise theory to real-life applications, and work towards NGB or industry qualifications.
There's a growing need for knowledgeable managers who understand both the sport and management skills required within sporting facilities and sports businesses.
It's anticipated that a range of career possibilities will be available to you, including:
