The workforce within football and sport businesses, clubs and organisations is changing and the line drawn between coaching, management and business within the same organisation has blurred.

This degree imparts the necessary leadership fundamentals required to inspire, organise and improve individuals.

You will develop your understanding of sports as a business and combine the opportunity to improve your coaching skills, long term athlete development and coaching pathways. You will explore different techniques for analysing performance including notational analysis and the use of technology to improve performance.

You will cover high performance coaching using the most up to date analytical tools. You will examine elite sports performance, gain an insight into leadership and management skills and develop an understanding of physical education and pedagogical issues.
