Abstract

The continual growth of sport management education around the globe has seen a plethora of initiatives evolve to diversify and enhance the provision across higher education. Specifically, the increased internationalisation of higher education has seen many institutions expand their international strategies to now focus on the perceived educational benefits of internationalisation. While the internationalisation of higher education is not a new topic of discourse, the shift in institutional policy has required sport management education practitioners to be adaptive in how they frame curriculum design and practice in order to fully embrace the requirements of an internationalised curriculum. Nonetheless, despite this increase in profile and demand for an internationalised curriculum, very little scholarship exists in sport management related to international education or curriculum design. In short, we know little from a pedagogical perspective about the growth of the international agenda, the associated changes to higher education and university course provision and the impact and opportunities that these changes have brought for students in particular.
