Your career optionsShow more
From football to fashion, concerts to trade fairs – live events shape the world and are of huge economic importance. The master’s degree programme, with its international focus, ideally prepares you for managerial roles in the booming sports and events branches. As a sport and event manager, you conceive, organise, and evaluate emotional worlds of experience that excite and touch people – and which are also an economic success.
The Master of Arts (M.A.) enables you to go on to complete your Ph.D. studies leading to a doctorate, possibly as a requirement for a teaching or research position at universities and other institutions.
The programme structureShow more
The main skills required for sport, event, and marketing management are the ability to communicate, to think in an interdisciplinary way, and to lead a team. In addition, International Sport Management is geared toward leadership roles in sport, while International Event Management focuses on planning and organisational roles. International Marketing Management complements these two subject areas.
To reinforce the vocational focus, the programme was developed in conjunction with experts from Ernst & Young (SCORE – Sports Consulting), with the involvement of communication agencies. You are thus equipped with in-depth knowledge and practical experience to embark on your career.
In order to prepare you further for the tasks of managing companies operating globally, an International Experience is integrated into your studies. To complete the International Experience successfully one can choose between different elements on a modular principle, which could be in the form of a Summer / Winter School, a semester abroad, an internship or student employee scheme. You will find out more information during our information events.
