This chapter presents a case study of the development of the BSc (Hons) Global Sport Management undergraduate degree which will explore the rationale, design and implementation processes utilised at the University of Portsmouth by examining Rayner et al.'s internationalisation of a curriculum model. Assessment practice employed within any internationalised curriculum needs to have a process of reflection to ensure a scaffolding of knowledge to impact upon the transformation of students’ perspectives; vital for a dual degree. The use of M. Foster and M. Carver's Internationalisation of the Curriculum Reflective Toolkit established the requirement to review assessment practice, examine course and module learning outcomes and transcend international awareness into international competence within the new course design. The development of a strategic partnership between the University of Portsmouth and Edith Cowan University provided the sport management course teams with a rare and unique approach to partnership development.
