  • Overview

    The module sets out to allow students to primarily understand leisure as a business which requires a range of
    management issues to be considered such as planning and development and the framework in which it
    operates at different geographical scales (global, national and local level as a business). The module will also
    examine operational issues associated with leisure and a range of financial and governance issues are
    addressed using principles and case studies to illustrate their significance. The module uses the example of
    events to exemplify the role of management in terms of strategy, impacts and planning outcomes in the
    context of mega events such as the Olympics. A range of contemporary issues in leisure management will also
    be addressed (e.g. gaming, betting and casinos to illustrate the role of sport as entertainment).
