Details Details
  • This programme is for students who have a desire to work in the growing and diverse range of businesses in the area of sports, exercise and well-being.
  • The sports, exercise and well-being sector is one of the largest service industries in Ireland and globally. Ranging from small to large enterprises, many are run by sports professionals. These businesses need graduates who can understand both the science and practicalities of the sports and exercise sector, and the fundamentals of how to create value and make a profit - via services and solutions that meet a variety of customers.
  • MH412 provides students with the unique option of combining Business with sports related content - from practical exercise skills to the science behind human performance and well-being.
  • In your third year, you will have an opportunity to undertake a work placement (subject to availability) which will allow you to apply what you have learned. Given the diversity of businesses in this sector, many run by those without formal business training, people with both business and sports science knowledge are highly attractive with many opportunities.
    *Students who choose to take the year three placement option will be required to undergo Garda Vetting in advance of this placement
