Welcome to the Sport Management program!
Find a job on the court, in the media or at the gym. Sport management prepares you for professional opportunities in health clubs, newspapers, private sports clubs, sports organizations/federations, television and many areas of recreation.
To prepare for the diverse responsibilities in the world of sport management, you will take courses in both sport management and business. Through your studies in sport management, you’ll gain an understanding of facilities, finance, human resource management, law, marketing, media and sales—and how they relate to sports.
You will select a competency from a variety of disciplines, and you will minor in either business administration or MBA-ready.
To gain hands-on experiences and prepare for a successful career, you will participate in two internships—one on-campus and one off-campus. These immersions are geared toward your future goals in the sport management field.
