Attend a two week intensive summer school at the UK's premier destination for sport and learn about how the world of sport interacts with the world of business. Loughborough University has a very strong heritage of both sports and business and you can study sports management in the international environment. Learn in small classes from experts in these areas; enjoy Loughborough’s first class sporting facilities and visit companies and organisations connected to the world of sport. Past visits to companies and organisations have included a visit to Manchester City Football Ground, Speedo Headquarters and Silverstone Racing Ground, home of British Motorsport. The summer school also includes a weekend trip to London which includes a tour of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
The Summer School is open to all international undergraduates and postgraduate students. We expect the course to be particularly attractive to current business or sports students who are interested in pursuing a career in international sports management, or in a sport-related social enterprise.
The aim of the course is to offer the opportunity for students around the world to student at the UK’s premier university for sport and experience the world leading standards of Loughborough University, including the first rate sporting facilities.
