Event Management is an industry with its own rulebook: The challenges of international sporting events require a particular set of skills. The master’s degree program in International Sport & Event Management offers an interdisciplinary, international education that prepares you for managerial roles in sport, event, and marketing management. All the main branches and fields of the industry are covered. Special highlights include case studies, seminars, and projects with partners from the world of business and science.
Our international focus is reinforced by an optional semester abroad, for which you can gain an additional academic degree (complementary international degree: MBA in Sports Management).
From football to fashion, concerts to trade fairs – live events shape the world and are of huge economic importance. The master’s degree program, with its international focus, ideally prepares you for managerial roles in the booming sports and events branches. As a sport and event manager, you conceive, organize, and evaluate emotional worlds of experience that excite and touch people – and which are also an economic success.
The Master of Arts (M.A.) enables you to go on to complete your Ph.D. studies leading to a doctorate, possibly as a requirement for a teaching or research position at universities and other institutions.
The main skills required for sport, event, and marketing management are the ability to communicate, to think in an interdisciplinary way, and to lead a team. In addition, International Sport Management is geared toward leadership roles in sport, while International Event Management focuses on planning and organizational roles.

To reinforce the vocational focus, the program was developed in conjunction with experts from Ernst & Young (SCORE – Sports Consulting) and Weirather-Wenzel & Partner, with the involvement of communication agencies. You are thus equipped with in-depth knowledge and practical experience to embark on your career.
