Motorsport Management (BSc, HND)

Motorsport Management is a management degree programme with a specific focus on the motorsport industry and the proximity to the other degrees in the Logistics Portfolio enhances the focus upon the management of a chain of supply from the production of a racing vehicle to the spectacle of a race venue.

Thus students proficient in such disciplines as Motorsport Management are able to exploit opportunities in this continually expanding industrial sector. The School of Engineering maintains close links with the Motorsport Industry Association (MIA) and other motorsport related organisations and is the preferred source of ‘Motorsport Ambassadors’ selected by the MIA to man their stand at motorsport industry shows and the prestigious annual House of Lords event. In addition, we will give you the opportunity to gain hands-on management experience with real race teams in real competitions.

What you will learn

Course Overview

The programme is designed to ensure that prospective and practising managers have a sound understanding of the operational, technical and personal aspects of the day-to-day management of all types of logistic operations, their facilities and infrastructure.   

During their studies students develop and enhance: 

  • their powers of persuasion through the improvement of their oral and written communication skills;
  • their analytical skills through developing the ability to sift information quickly and produce coherent reports;
  • their ability to plan and coordinate the allocation of resources and their ability to manage a workforce with due recognition of diversity in all of its forms.  

In other words students develop the attributes of a good manager and one that recognises that gaining a BSc(Hons) is just the start of the process of Continual Professional Development.
