Content and structure
The Bachelor in Sport Management is a 1½ year study programme (top-up) consisting of three semesters. The first two semesters will be based on theory and practice whereas the third semester will consist of an internship in a company abroad or in Denmark.
The Sport Management programme is closely related to practice and the lessons are characterised by both lectures and exercises. Each semester offers a project based on the overall theme and linking all subject areas. As a natural progression, most exams are inter-disciplinary.
The 3rd semester is a specialisation module, which include an internship in a company or an organisation in Denmark or abroad. It is important that you take an active part in finding the internship that matches the professional profile you want to acquire. The internship will give you the opportunity to use the qualifications that you have obtained in class and put them into practice.
The final bachelor project concludes the programme. The students choose the topic of their bachelor report in consultation with Cphbusiness and preferably with a company as well. This gives you the opportunity to apply principles in practice. Cphbusiness must approve the project outline.
As a graduate you can apply for a large variety of jobs. You can find some examples below:
- Sport event planner
- Marketing- og event coordinator
- Sponsorship coordinator
- Development consultant
- Sport consultant
- Project manager
- Key account manager
The Professional Bachelor Degree in Sport Management qualifies you to join the labour market immediately after graduation. It is possible to apply for a Master’s degree in Denmark or abroad after graduating with a Professional Bachelor Degree in Sport Management but admission is not guaranteed and you might have to take extra courses.
Learning environment and study activities
At Cphbusiness, we see it as our most important task to contribute to your development so that you can help create the future business life.
Thus, Cphbusiness’ study activities aim to develop your academic and personal skills, in order to let you navigate in an organisation and create value at a work place or start and run your own company.
We believe that you learn best by working with specific tasks in practice. Therefore, our student activities are less focused on traditional teaching and to a greater extent built around activities where you play an active role yourself. You will have co-responsibility for and influence on your own learning, and feedback will be an important part of the study activities.
Besides traditional teaching, the study activities will include project work, cases and assignment work, where you through cooperation and dialogue solve specific tasks along with your fellow students and with your lecturers as counsellors. Furthermore, you will be challenged in digital study activities.
At Cphbusiness, all of the study programmes are scheduled as a full-time course of study. However, we try to create an environment where you can study full-time and also work at a part-time job. We do this in order to help you strengthen your business skills. As a result of this, you typically have two half days or one whole day off every week, which you can use on your part-time job, together with your study group or on your own preparation.
Education with a world of opportunities
At Cphbusiness, we offer you the opportunity to build and unfold your global, intercultural and linguistic skills through study activities, where you cooperate with students from all over the world. As a natural part of the study programme, the teaching activities including books and cases etc. will be in English.
In every study programme, an obligatory internship is included where you can test your own skills in a company abroad or in an international company in Denmark. In doing so, you will prepare yourself for the global job market that waits for you when you graduate.
What we expect of you as a student
Active participation in the study activities at Cphbusiness will, to a great extent, help you feel better equipped for your future job. Therefore, we expect that you:
- participate in study activities with lecturers, in study groups and on an individual level;
- participate in a mix of study activities (for example project work, workshops, digital learning activities and traditional teaching);
- want to learn in groups along with your fellow students with a diverse background;
- work full time with your studies – this means around 40 hours weekly besides a potential part-time job; and
- want to be challenged in your international and linguistic skills.
You should expect to place your part-time job in the evenings and weekends.
The purpose of the internship is to give the student an opportunity to apply his/her skills from the first two semesters by working in a company in a relevant sector on a job-like basis.
The companies are expected to contribute with best practice experience. During the internship, the student has a guidance teacher from his/her programme as well as a contact person in the company.
The student and the guidance teacher together set goals for the student’s prfessional and personal development during the internship period, which will subsequently be normative for organizing the student’s job function.
The internship is concluded with an evaluation meeting in which the student and the guidance teacher evaluates the student’s development from the internship against the initial goals.
You may compare the internship to a full time job with the same demands to working hours, effort, commitment, and flexibility, the student is likely to meet in his/her first job.
