MASTER OF SCIENCESport Event & Hospitality Management




C​areers with this master's in sports and tourism

The global sport, event, and hospitality industries are worth billions of Euros and employ millions of people across the world. In mature economies such as France, the United States and Australia, these industries typically contribute up to 3% to annual Gross Domestic Product. Elsewhere, in countries like Saudi Arabia, China, and Brazil, there are ambitions to build sport economies of a comparable size.

Across the world, there is a growing demand for appropriately educated and skilled people to work in these industries, at local, national, and international levels. Whether your professional ambitions are in sport, events, and hospitality, or even in fashion, music or entertainment, your mission will be to provide and manage high quality experiences for increasingly demanding customers.

Graduates of our MSc will meet this challenge, finding work in managerial, leadership, and consulting positions, across a range of different organisations that include governing bodies, government, specialist consultancies, entertainment or sporting venues, teams, clubs, major brand sponsors, event promoters, social media business, broadcasters and many more.
