Institute of Sport Economics and Sport Management

Founded in 1989, the Institute for Sports Economics and Sports Management can now look back on almost 20 years of extremely successful history. With the two Chairs of Sports Economics (Prof. Dr. S. Uhrich) and Sports Management (Prof. Dr. C. Breuer), twelve research assistants and about 800 students in the Bachelor’s programme in Sports Management and Sport Communication as well as the Master’s programme in Sport Management, the Institute has developed into one of the world’s largest educational and research institutions in the fields of sports economics and sports management. The institute sees itself as a provider of high-quality services in research, teaching and consulting and thus combines the claim to make important contributions both to the development of sports economics as a scientific discipline and to the professionalization of sports management as a professional field.

Institute of European Sport Development and Leisure Studies

Due to the ever increasing integration of sport with other social areas and actors, due to the ever increasing influence of political actors in particular on the shaping of sport and its framework conditions, as well as due to increasing Europeanization and globalization, the field of action of sports policy has become decisively more important. The Institute for European Sports Development and Leisure Research provides the framework for the sports policy and leisure research activities of the German Sport University Cologne. In conjunction with cooperation partners, political, social and sports science findings are brought together in such a way that a distinct core of sports policy thinking becomes visible. The team of the institute offers students, scientists and all other interested parties numerous offers in teaching and research. The focus is on the topics of “sports policy,” “sports and development cooperation,” and “leisure and tourism research”. The Institute and its Jean Monnet Chair devote special attention to the European dimension of sport. The Institute is also home to the “Forum Sportpolitik” and hosts the annual symposia on sports policy. Since the winter semester in 2016/17, the IESF has also been coordinating the master’s program “International Sport Development and Politics”. The program is science-oriented and aims as much at problem-solving skills as at methods for understanding and analyzing sport.
