The Sport Management education is suitable for those who want to work in managerial positions in sport organizations, both non-profit and private, or in public sport administration.

The SPMxxx courses are aimed to stimulate critical and analytical thinking for sport managers working in sports organizations. The courses cover subjects related to leadership, management, marketing and organizational theory. Students applying for the Sport Management courses are encouraged to familiarize with the major sport organizations and major sporting events prior to attending the courses.

The TIxx courses are part of our Coaching and Sport Psychology program and covers topics related to coaching children and youth (TI200) where contextual knowledge and insights into the young athletes’ mindset is the focus.  TI205 is directed toward the analytical perspective of sport participation and give students a theoretical foundation and practical skills to develop analysis question, collect, analyse, write report and present valid and relevant performance data for practical and academic settings. Finally, the TI305 Performance management course will give students an introduction to the way leading groups in sport do holistic, integrated, and functional talent- and performance development.
