Programme content

The MSc in Sport Management is designed to prepare students to work in management positions in the sport and sport-related sector. It intends to convey a solid understanding and knowledge about sport as it is practiced in the European context, and to introduce students to legal, ethical, economical, organizational, historical, political, and psychological topics necessary to meet the demands of this growing sector.

The combination of broad sport related topics, specific sport management concentrations, a 15 ECTS internship as well as dedicated students and faculty is the best preparation for future sport managers.

Molde University College collaborates with the Football Association of Norway and many other partner organizations which give our students unique access to internships. This provides important entries to organizations and platforms of exchange between practitioners, students and faculty staff.

Our studies are flexible, and students can go on exchange to one of our partner universities in Europe.

The 2 year (120 ECTS) international MSc programme in Sport Management is given in English, and consists of 90 credits of courses, and a master's thesis of 30 credits.
