Why Study Sports Management?

Sports Management is a broader program than many people assume. While the degree can be utilized to get into large organizations such as a professional sports team, it also serves a number of other purposes. While in the program, students study a diverse range of courses relating to talent representation, event planning & management, public relations, and anatomy. This program is geared towards students that are active and interested in sports and recreational activities. Whether you want to work in the MLB or own a rock-climbing gym, sports management provides insight into the business world behind sports and recreation.
