1st semester

The 1st semester focuses on: Professional business practices in the sport industry.

This includes a thorough insight into:

  • The sports industry and its context 
  • Methodology and research in sports
  • Sport marketing 
  • Sport management

Furthermore, this semester features two selected themes where students will work within new areas, trends or similar subjects related to the sport management trade.

2nd semester

The 2nd semester builds on the knowledge of some of the subjects of the 1st semester and adds an extra higher-level dimension to them.

The 2nd semester will focus on:

  • Events
  • Mass sport

This includes a thorough insight into the following academic fields:

  • Sport law (sport contracts / risk management)
  • Sport economics
  • Sport management
  • Sport marketing

Similar to the 1st semester, students will work on themes on the 2nd semester. As the other themes, the contents of this theme are decided on depending on what is going on in the business at the time.

3rd semester

The final semester is made up of an internship and bachelor project. The internship allows you to try out the theory and methodologies that you have learnt through practical solving of tasks in a sport event or leisure company or organisation in Denmark or abroad. This is your opportunity for further immersion into a subject before you finalise your education with your bachelor project.

Similar to the internship, the bachelor project is your chance to show your achieved competencies in methodology, analysis and theory related to a sport event and leisure company or organisation in Denmark or abroad.


Tuition on the 1st and 2nd semesters is based on a mix of whole class teaching, exercises, lectures, case work, projects, presentations (including student presentations), seminars and study visits to organisations related to the study programme.

In contrast, the 3rd semester usually takes place in a company or organisation.
