Description: The primary objective of the sport management program is to provide students with the interdisciplinary knowledge, professional application, critical thinking, problem-solving, and leadership skills necessary to effectively manage sport and exercise programs. Students are provided with learning opportunities to acquire the ability to work with and through diverse groups of people to achieve stated organizational goals. Proficient application of business principles to the sport industry distinguishes this program, which is characterized by helping students develop a foundation in finance, economics, budgeting, marketing, law, governance and policy, facility design, event operations, and human resources management so that students can then apply these general principles to the sport industry. Students are also prepared to possess the competitive knowledge and skills to effectively communicate their ideas through both written and oral forms of presentations.

Career Opportunities: The program prepares graduates to begin careers in a variety of administrative areas within the sport industry. Professional sport teams, college athletic departments, sport marketing and public relations firms, sports agencies, and health and fitness facilities are some of the business sectors that graduates can be qualified for employment. The program also prepares undergraduate students to apply for graduate programs in sport management and other academic areas such as business, law, communication and journalism, and public administration.
