Return to Academic Departments Return to: Academic Departments

This program reflects the fact that sports today is as much about marketing events and refining a brand as it is about working with players and scheduling events - and that strong business skills are essential for successful careers in sport management. Students complete a core of business courses plus specific courses related to the business side of sports and recreation. An internship is required. Students graduate with a B.A. in Business with a concentration in Sport Management. Career opportunities range from managing professional teams and arenas to overseeing the marketing and finances of sports teams and organizations.
