Why choose the Sport Management Degree BSc (Hons) with ISDE and Northumbria University?


Our curriculum addresses the specific needs of international sports organizations. Therefore, the program has been designed from the ground up as a sport management degree, rather than a business degree with some attached sports modules. Learning in this sport-rich environment offers numerous opportunities for you to engage in CPD (Continuing Professional Development), volunteering, access a variety of sports networks, and undertake a placement with a local sports organization – alternatively, you can choose to complete your placement with an international partner.
