Global Online MSc Sport Business, Management and Policy
Based in a city known internationally as a centre of sporting excellence and innovation, Manchester Metropolitan has and continues to develop a world-leading academic focus on sport. Far more than being a management degree touching on sport, this 100% online course specialises solely on this area, and is grounded in current practice and themes to ensure students build the expertise that leading organisations require them to have.
This programme is taught by leading academics in the field and based in a double accredited Business School (AMBA and AACSB) which is recognised globally for its degree programmes, research, business engagement and innovation. It is delivered through an expertly designed virtual learning platform to ensure an online student experience of the highest quality. You’ll have the freedom and convenience to choose when and where you study, helping you to fit learning in around your busy personal and professional commitments. Plus, you will be provided with a number of tools, including self-assessments, study and graduation planners, to help you track your progress and better manage your time. You’ll participate in interactive activities with likeminded students throughout your course, including taking part in live weekly seminars on topical industry issues (these are also recorded to watch later) and regular virtual discussions and group projects.
The University maintains strong links to high profile sports clubs and bodies, such as Manchester United FC, Manchester City FC and the English Institute of Sport. You will also have the chance to learn from academics, whose research in the field is internationally renowned, and benefit from their strong industry connections with bodies such as the organising committees for the Olympics and Qatar 2022 World Cup. There may also be the opportunity to take advantage of these links and conduct a real-world piece of research in collaboration with a professional sports organisation as part your Research Project.
Throughout your two year course, you will have a dedicated Student Success Advisor. Whether you need pastoral support, help with navigating around the learning platform or assistance with assessments or fees, they will be there to guide you from registration to graduation. You will also have access to the University's Careers and Employability Service for up to three years after graduation, with online services including: careers advice; support with job applications and video interview support; career mentoring from employers connected to the university and practice aptitude/personality tests. Other online support services you will benefit from as a Global Online student are a Wellbeing team, a Learner Development Team and Library Services.

I am not that tech savvy but I found the Virtual Learning Environment easy. Plus, the advice I have received from the Student Support team has been immense. They are very friendly and quick to get back to you on any queries.
