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 sector of business and science.

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. International Marketing Management complements these two subject areas.

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.
All classes are conducted in English. The optional semester abroad takes place at Real Madrid Graduate School in the second semester. By choosing this option, you can gain an additional academic degree alongside your master's degree at BiTS without extending the study period (complementary international degree).

Course format: 

full-time
