Course Overview

UCFB is a college of Bucks New University and this course is available to applicants from the UK, EU and EEA only.

Sport is regulated by a complex pattern of law and regulation. Sport executives not only need to conform to the regulations established by the authorities, but they must also use their understanding of the legal framework to ensure compliance with the law of the land, and protect the business from risk.

This degree links the commercial and legal aspects of the sport business, understanding the ramifications of an industry which is increasingly affected by legal regulations, and bringing sport in line with other sectors.
