The planning, implementing and evaluating of major sport events is characterised by dynamic management environments that bring together a wide array of stakeholders. Large multi-sport events present both logistical and organisational challenges for host cities, as well as opportunities to plan for and create a range of short- and long-term benefits and event legacies. This course will introduce students to the complexity of managing major sport events. Students will study a number of planning, operations and event legacy management issues across the life span of major sport events, from the bid phase to event evaluations. This course will offer students practical as well as theoretical insights into the dynamic and at times challenging nature of sport event management.
