Additional Information

“Sports and related recreational activities are not only fun, they are also big business. With annual revenue at an estimated $200 billion, the sport industry is one of the largest in the U.S. I challenge Sport Management students to get serious about working in a sport-related field they are passionate about and work toward gaining the education and experience necessary to succeed in the sport industry. Students in our program can expect to gain knowledge through specialized sport management coursework and apply that knowledge by engaging in sport-related field experiences and internships that best fits their level of interest and passion.”
