Sport Studies | International Sport Management - English - 3 years - Full-time

The International Sport Management (ISPM) study deals with the organisational side of sport. This programme is the first step towards your professional success in the global sport industry. During your studies you will become an established leader, participate within an international sport network and actively engage in intercultural initiatives. Due to the extreme international environment of the programme, you will also perfect your English and build your own global network.

What do we look for? A student who has a passion for sports, is a team-player and has a global outlook are traits we look for in an ISPM student. Not only that, but also who has an interest in business and who wants to become their own version of a game changer. If you have an aptitude and curiosity for finance, marketing, research, communications, sociology, ethics, law and politics is beneficial.

The three-year ISPM programme starts in September.
