The Department of Sport Management familiarizes students with all aspects of the sports industry and prepares them to be leaders of the future.

 Sports business is big business

Our goal is to create a stimulating and cooperative learning environment for analyzing issues pertaining to the business and culture of sports. As one of the few sport-based degree programs housed within a business school, we offer a comprehensive, business-focused curriculum that incorporates classroom learning with real-world, experiential learning.

Sport management students may enroll in the  4+1 MBA program during their senior year. This option enables students to graduate with two degrees in five years: a Bachelor of Science degree in Sport Management and an M.B.A. A minor in sport management is also available.

Great complement to any degree!
Most of our students choose co-op experiences to augment their training

"I'm currently majoring in Sport Psychology, in other words, I'm majoring in Psychology and have a minor in Sport Management. I chose to have Sport Management as a minor because it gives me a better understanding of how sports marketing works. I'm learning the ins and outs of intercollegiate, professional, and amateurs' sports while connecting it to the mental health problems within athletes. I'll be pursuing my master's and doctorate degrees after graduation. My eventual goal is to become a well-rounded and respected Sports Psychologists. I want to leave a lasting impact on the people I interact with on a daily basis."
