Top Master's Degrees in Sport in Europe 2019

In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

When studying sport, students usually choose between focusing on the business and strategic elements of sports or the physiological aspects. Those studying the former typically have the potential to coach or manage professional sports organizations while the latter aid in physical training.

There are more than four thousand higher education organizations in Europe, from leading research institutions to small, teaching-focused universities. Europe itself is not as much different than other continents, reaching from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.

The study program of the Master in Coaching is based on Johan Cruyff’s vision where coaching is more than the use of tactical and technical knowledge.

It is about managing yourself, the players & staff, the team and the environment. Each participant’s personal background is a base for further development and a better understanding of oneself as a coach and/or manager. The principle of coaching is that you then apply this insight knowledge to counseling others.

This program is interesting for those who are a coach or manager in sports, but it is also appropriate for (team) managers, staff members, leaders, counselors and HRM-consultants from the business sectors. For example, students came from, the Police department, an insurance company, an energy provider and a big congress center.... [-]
