Sports Management Philosophy

Professional sports organizations are big business today. Behind the winning records and famous player names are many other employees and activities. The Sports Management program exposes students to all facets of the business of sports, including sports sponsorship relationships, team and league equity issues, labor and personnel management, and a wide variety of ethical and social issues facing business professionals in both professional and amateur athletics. The program prepares students for internal positions in sports organizations, public marketing, radio and television programming and events management. An internship in a sports organization blends theory with practice.
