Sports Management

Why study Sports Management?

Sports Management is a gateway into a multi-billion-dollar industry. Earning a degree in sports management can provide students with unique opportunities to pursue their dreams while also earning a great living. The Sports Management Program is designed to enhance students’ knowledge and skills to promote the health and well-being of individuals and society through the creation, implementation and maintenance of health, fitness, and sports related services.

While recognizing the diverse nature of the sports and fitness industries in America, the Sports Management Program seeks to equip students with management principles specific to sports-related industries; to equip students with interpersonal skills to deal with a variety of constituencies; to prepare students for further study and/or careers in coaching, health management, fitness administration, and other sport management related positions.

From organizing community athletic leagues to working for college and professional sports teams, students have opportunities to refine their communications, leadership, finance, and management skills.
