There is a common core across the degrees in the first year so that all students benefit from a broad exposure to the fundamentals of business management. You will develop a chosen specialism as well as an understanding of how this fits in with other core disciplines in the football and wider sports industry. The special features of the football and sports industry are also identified in each business studies module, exploring the core fundamentals of the football and sports sector.
In the second year, the study time is divided between the football and/or sports business pathway and your chosen specialism.
The third year includes a football or sports business research project (dissertation). You will graduate with the satisfaction of having researched a pressing issue in the football and sports industry through having had the opportunity to discuss your work decisions and recommendations with those in the football and sports business grappling with the very same question(s).
Football is regulated by a complex pattern of law and regulation. The relationship between these two systems is not always clear and this can lead to confusion amongst those who work within the football industry. Football executives not only need to operate in conformity with the regulations established by the competent football authorities, but they must also ensure compliance with the law of the land. This complexity is increasing with media rights and merchandise being sold on a global basis and the introduction of UEFA’s Financial Fair Play regulations.
This degree links the commercial and legal aspects of the sports business, understanding the ramifications of an industry which is increasingly affected by legal regulations, bringing football in line with other sectors. You will gain an insight and understanding of the relationship between law and the sports business industry, in terms of sports governance and administration.
