Semester 1

Students will be enabled to align their thinking with business objectives, implementing the strategy against externally set benchmarks, measuring outcomes and reinforcing the corporate social responsibility strategy. In this module, students will also gain an in-depth understanding of how football clubs and governing bodies are run from the top down. Furthermore, students will examine the regulatory landscape of the game and assess the need for further intervention from authorities

Engaging the Football Consumer

Students will identify key factors which explore the changing nature of football consumer typologies.

Semester 3

Dissertation and Research Methods

The individual research project focuses on producing an in depth piece of work which has theoretical/ practical/ industrial/commercial relevance to the sports industry. Ideally, this will be a piece of industry sponsored work to produce a commercial output for the sponsor. The work need not be sports-related but mat be applied in the area of sports. In other words, a project may take the best practice from another industry and apply it in the sports industry. The sponsor will be viewed and treated like a client and this the client will have certain requirements. Thus, the research proposal will have to meet both client and academic requirements for it to be approved. It also provides an opportunity to develop and demonstrate advanced scholarship skills.
This combined research methods and dissertation module provides subject-specific methods training in preparation for the completion of a dissertation within the domains of sports management, marketing, entrepreneurship and leisure management. The research topic that you select must align with the title of the programme on which you are enrolled. The module begins with a series of taught research methods sessions, during which a research proposal is produced. This proposal then guides the development of a clearly defined and evidenced study purpose, a critical review of the extant literature, and a robust methodology. Data is then collected, analysed, interpreted and applied to the study purpose, and a 12,000 word research report (dissertation) is produced.
