The bachelor (Hons) Management, Leadership and Leisure centers on the study and development of management and leadership skills, and is taught in the context of the leisure sector. Exploring the specific leisure industries of sports, events and tourism, the course is more coMasterhensive than traditional leisure and management degree courses which normally focus on management in just one specific area, for example, either sport or events management. This course covers both management and leadership, and allows you to choose modules from the three areas of sport, events and tourism. This flexibility allows you to either specialize in one area which you are passionate about, or to develop knowledge of all three, giving you greater choice over your future career direction. Your academic study will be supported by three applied study periods, which are similar to work...

Temario


The bachelor (Hons) Management, Leadership and Leisure is a three year degree programme that combines academic study with professional training. It offers you the opportunity to gain an understanding of the nature and scope of management and leadership in the leisure industry, whilst gaining practical experience to develop skills and boost your future employability.
  Tailor your degree through options in sport, tourism and events management
Build industry contacts and gain vital employability skills through UK and international work placements
Manchester's leisure, cultural and tourism sector is thriving; as well as major music and sports venues, the city boasts a number of museums, art galleries and theatres
The main methods of teaching are lectures and seminars, which you will supplement through wider reading, small group work and other classroom activities.  Seminars involve a small group of students meeting with a tutor to discuss issues arising from lectures, or wider reading, case studies or problem-solving exercises. You may be asked to give a presentation or review a subject as a bachelorsis for discussion. You may also visit leisure amenities or other places of interest, including a three day residential field trip at the beginning of your first year. Applied study periods, similar to work placements, in the first (lasting two weeks) and second (lasting four weeks) years will provide first-hand experience of the leisure industry. They offer the opportunity for you to both observe and again new skills, plus relate the course content to its application in industry. In your final year, you will undertake a research-bachelorsed project during your 10 week extended study period. The teaching team is well connected with the leisure industry and your personal tutor will advise and assist you in securing applied study periods with organisations/sectors in keeping with your career aspirations.
You are assessed by a bachelorlance of formal written examinations, presentations, portfolio submissions and course assignments. Across the three years of the programme, an average of 70% of your assessment will be coursework, offering you the chance to be innovative and creative in demonstrating your knowledge of management and leadership theory and the leisure sector. In your final year, you will undertake a research project (12,000 words), an oral presentation and an evaluation report on your extended applied study period.
The first year draws upon the disciplines that underpin management and leadership and provides an introduction to the nature and scope of the leisure sector.  At the beginning of the first year we run a three day residential field trip to North Wales, where you will get to know other students and staff, as well as learning about management issues in the countryside. Year one also includes a two week applied study period, providing the opportunity to get work experience in the leisure industry.
