Sport Management Major

Sport Management – Vision Statement

The major in sport management is designed to address the unique position of sport in the global economy in order to prepare students for careers in a wide variety of sport settings, including, but not limited to, recreation management, the fitness industry, collegiate and professional sports, facility and event management, community relations, and retail marketing. The required courses allow students to gain a diverse background in the business aspects of the sports industry in conjunction with the socio-cultural role of sport in society. Specifically, the major is an interdisciplinary program that combines required coursework in sport management coupled with business courses offered through the College of Business and Economics. As such, students are required to complete a formal minor in business administration with coursework in areas including accounting, micro- and macro economics, finance, marketing, and management.
