Global Licentiate in Sports Management


Program Description


Traditionally, sport management is based on the scientific field of sport, neglecting the knowledge of the business sciences.

Our offer emerges from the synergy between the Faculty of Health Sciences and Sports and the Faculty of Business and Social Sciences, bringing together the experience of the professional context of Sport with the scientific know-how of management, marketing, finance and leadership.

We apply competence-based teaching while developing knowledge, skills and attitudes.

We encourage the development of soft-skills, not just hard-skills, because we believe that professional success is as dependent on knowledge as it is about interpersonal relationships.

Our mission is to train global professionals through an international semester, foreign professionals in the classroom, and English-language co-teaching.

We place the student at the center of the teaching-learning process as an active agent in building their knowledge.

We want students to be able to produce creative solutions to traditional business problems.
