Why Sport Management + MBA?

A degree in Sport Management provides the opportunity to pursue a career in a field that is all about fun. Additionally, a Master of Business Administration equips students with the business knowledge and skills needed to succeed in a broad range of fields. If you love all things sports, want to learn more of the behind-the-scenes, and are a student-athlete or a weekend warrior, a sports management degree can help fuel your sports passion.

This dual-level program allows you to condense what would be six years of study (four-year bachelor’s + two-year master’s) into just five years by starting master-level courses as early as your junior year. You’ll be able to complete all requirements for both degrees in as few as five years without taking summer courses.

You will also continue to receive your undergraduate scholarships and tuition aid for all five years of study, which will save you thousands of dollars.
