Graduate careers

Many graduates find employment in sport, and others use graduate skills gained through this degree in a wide variety of sectors.

The Sport Management degree is new for 2022 but we have had a sport management related degree at the University of Edinburgh for many years. Graduates of our previous degree, the Sport and Recreation Management programme have progressed to be successful in a variety of sectors:

  • Commercial settings
  • Marketing
  • Retail
  • Finance
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Community work
  • Teaching
  • Third sector organisations
  • Further study

See examples of previous graduates and how they progressed after university.

Careers Service

The University of Edinburgh's Careers Service supports all current students (and graduates for up to 2 years) to develop their potential and achieve satisfying and rewarding futures.  This is done through individual appointments, group sessions and wider campus-based activity, alongside online services and resources.  A diverse programme of face-to-face and online events is delivered throughout the academic year.  

Annual Careers Event for Sport Management

The Careers Service and Development and Alumni team organise an annual careers event where we invite graduates to speak about their experiences and give advice to our current students. Graduates of the Sport Management (or previous Sport and Recreation Management) give short talks about their experiences of work since completing their degrees, including how they have used their skills and knowledge developed from the degree, their decision-making in relation to their career progression and other professional development experiences.

This gives you the opportunity to ask questions about how you can progress in your career, and discuss topics such as networking, interviews and getting the most out of their university experience to support your future goals.
