Awarded by: The University of Edinburgh

The programme critically examines the commercialised and mediatised world of professional sport, and the important realms of community recreation and physical activity; recognising that sport managers operate in a highly politicised environment.

The programme focuses on areas and issues of specific relevance to the management of sport organisations.
