Master of Science (MSc) in Sport Business Management

The global multibillion-dollar sports industry has experienced since the 1990s formidable and sustained growth. In particular, the multiplication of international and national events including Olympic Games, World Championships and alike, generates enormous public attention but also millions of dollars in revenues each year.*

Opportunities are virtually limitless in the sports industry. Yet, risks and abuses (such as those brought by doping, excessive gambling, and sports clubs’ disproportionate use of financial debt) also exist. IUM’s Master in International Sport Business Management prepares participants for a variety of positions in the industry. By doing so, the school not only seeks to provide students with solid skills and competencies but also strives to train ethical and responsible business leaders. In fact, a Financial Times article, published in December 2010, emphasized a “shortage of qualified managers,” and the adverse impacts of such a phenomenon.*... [-]
