MBA in Sports Law and Management - XI edition

I level
1 year
Alternate weekends (saturday and sunday) and 1 week full time

February 2024


The aim of the 1st level MBA Master in Sports Law and Management is to train management figures capable of presiding over all aspects of management and organization in the field of sports.

In a global context, where sport represents not only a right of the individual but also a social and, above all, an economic phenomenon, the approach to sports dynamics requires professional figures capable of dealing with a wide range of careers: from the economic and financial management aspects of law, to security and communication.

Needless to say, the supply chain fueled by sports, the media interest originating from the phenomenon and, more generally, its economic potential, elevate the sports sphere to a business sector of considerable importance. However, said consideration must be accompanied by a further observation, which is probably clear, but which possesses a premise in educational terms that cannot be overlooked: the sports sector also carries a series of peculiarities that do not allow its outright assimilation to other areas of business. For this reason, at the dawn of the third millennium it, is not sufficient to have a common managerial preparation to manage the sports phenomenon as a whole, but it is necessary to decline the traditional subjects of an academic master in business administration in terms of sport, thus addressing its unique features. This course will pay particular attention to the historical evolution and values of sports, as well as to its social function and the impact of new technologies. Along this track, the figures that the master's degree aspires to train are:

  • Managers of national and international bodies and federations
  • Managers of sports associations and clubs
  • Sports event organizers and facility managers
  • Managers of the professional athlete
