A good standard of English is required because teaching at the University typically involves student participation, class discussion and student presentations. A minimum IELTS score of 6.5, a TOEFL score of 575/230/88 or a minimum CAE score of C is required.
I think the programme of Sport and Event Management contributed with a wide range of knowledge, which enables the student to aim for several industries after finishing the study. Still, there are courses that include knowledge from the sport sector. I have been very excited about the courses, which give you a view in the world of sport but also the courses like Project Management which really give you some tangible tools for your later career. Furthermore, the programme is structured in quarters, which means that the courses are more intensive and you are focused on two courses, which I found really effective.

Jesper Kjær, studying M.Sc. in Economics and Business Administration – Sports and Event Management The master degree in sport & event management at this educational level offered by University of Southern Denmark seems unique, and it enables me to work with my passion in music and sport events professionally - both during my studies and for my future career. The location in Esbjerg had initially little influence on my choice of education, but has shown to have great advantages. It is a relatively small milieu, which shortens the distance to the university administration as well as the local business environment.
Please note that there is restriction on number of places.
