SEMESTER 2: ASIAN COURSE PROGRAMME

Asia has become the largest sporting goods market in the world and its economic growth has led to an impressive increase in new sports business investments.

The second semester of the Global Sports Business Master’s programme focuses on the opportunities for collaboration in Asia and on the challenges that this gigantic market represents to European and American sports organisations. Students will also understand the economic implications when developing successful business strategies in Asia.

One giant is specifically at the heart of sport business in Asia: China.

From Chinese investors acquiring and investing in sports properties across Europe, international leagues and teams looking to engage a new wave of fans, trading of key broadcast rights, to China’s strategic acquisition of major international sports events, it is incontestable to say that the world of sport has well and truly awakened to the considerable opportunities the Chinese market has to offer.

To fully immerse students in this global powerhouse, a 4-week study trip is organized in Shanghai and Beijing, in partnership with the best sport universities in the country: Shanghai University of Sport and Beijing Sport University.
Students will be able to picture the transformations and innovations taking place in China that have been influencing the international sports environment.
