Passion for sports? The Degree Programme in Sports Coaching and Management prepares students with the knowledge and skills needed in today’s sports and leisure industry.

Through competence-based approach, the programme prepares students along four main development streams with the focus on

  1. personal development and professional growth
  2. coach development
  3. event and organizational management and
  4. RDI competences.

The teaching is organized in English enabling students to work in an international environment during their work placement and upon completion of the studies.

The competence-based, student-centered studies demand from the students a high degree of independent working skills and self-motivation with the development process built in line with the individual interests and preexisting competencies. During the studies, students are also involved in developing new solutions for coaching and management at the local, national and international level.

The first two years of the studies include intensive studying at the Haaga-Helia UAS Vierumäki Campus, after which the student has a chance to obtain information and knowledge in a real life working environment during the 1–1 1/2 years of work placement.
