Programme Overview

BHA logoThis unique Thoroughbred Horseracing Industries MBA is the only masters-level qualification in the world to be delivered through an exclusive partnership with The Racing Foundation and the British Horseracing Authority. The programme combines the Management School’s expertise in sports industry management, with the specialist equine knowledge of the University’s School of Veterinary Science. As an MBA programme it has the real business focus that management positions in modern horseracing demand. This is based on links with key sectors of the industry — from racecourses, horseracing governance and administration, trainers, owners and breeders, to the gambling industry and the media. If you’re looking to develop your skills as an effective manager and potential leader in the global horseracing industry, this is the MBA for you.

Find out more about our Thoroughbred Horseracing Industries MBA at our MBA open evening on Thursday 24th January 2019, 5pm-7pm.
