As a student on our unique Joint Honours programme, which draws together expertise from two world'renowned departments, you'll study both a broad range of sport, health and exercise sciences and key business disciplines including management, organisational behaviour, marketing and entrepreneurship. As a graduate, you will be equipped with the knowledge of business administration and management processes needed to understand and address problems facing complex, fast'changing organisations. You will also have a detailed knowledge and understanding of the scientific principles underpinning sport, health, and exercise sciences. This combination is highly valued by employers. We have world'class sporting facilities, including a running track used by Usain Bolt, who told the BBC: 'Brunel is awesome! The University has really done great for us. We come here every summer, that's where we stay, and they really show us a lot of love. We get a lot of support from everybody there ' so thank you guys!' Our great location in London, plus our strong links with sports personnel, organisations and institutions at local, regional, national and international levels, enables us to offer our students considerable opportunities for career progression.
