About

The Leadership in Sport programme offered by the University of South Wales provides a focus on leadership development to aid current and future leaders in the sports industry.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

The nature of the sports industry is rapidly changing and there is a far greater need than ever before for sports development officers and sports coordinators to have core business and management skills which can help them to become the future leaders within the sector. 

The Leadership in Sport  programme offered by the University of South Wales  will be of particular interest to those who are already working in the sports industry or those who aspire to lead or manage within the sector. 

A sports context will drive discussions and facilitate learning, but given the transferability of the core leadership and management principles covered, the MA Leadership in Sport would also appeal to current or potential leaders in other sectors, who have an interest in sport and physical activity.

Careers

The need for relevant further education for sports professionals continues to increase given the highly competitive nature of the sport industry with hundreds applying for a handful of jobs. Current professionals and new applicants are therefore keen to gain a competitive edge over others for promotion, with postgraduate qualifications providing one such advantage

The MA Leadership in Sport aims and learning outcomes are focused upon students acquiring the knowledge and employability skills to gain employment within the sports sector with the aim of progressing into management roles USW Sport has a strong track record of creating employable graduates within the sports industry and beyond. 

This emphasis on student employability remains the core focus for the Sport academic subject area.
