International sponsorship and corporate com-petition have transformed sports into a multibillion-euro industry. International sports have set trends and redefined boundaries in international politics and cross-cultural communication, as well as trademark rights and financial models. This field requires professionals with specific sports management skills combined with deep business and financial understanding. Students acquire specific skills to meet the challenges of this competitive atmosphere through courses in negotiation, sponsorship and broadcasting, among others.
