What Is Sport Management?

The study of Sport Management examines the impact of economic, social and legal influences on the administration and management of sport organizations.

Why Study Sport Management?

The study of Sport Management provides students an opportunity to learn the multiple dimensions involved in managing a sports organization. Students will explore the practical and effective characteristics of a professional sport manager and be exposed to the major settings in which sport managers work. Information about sport marketing, communications, finances and economics will be shared. Business principles and the relationship between the industry of sport and business will be introduced and established. Students also will be exposed to current challenges and future trends to illustrate how consumer behavior, sociological patterns, globalization and laws affect sport management and the sport industry.

A note on pathways: A pathway is an advising guide to help students prepare for their intended bachelor’s degree major. By following the course of study outlined in the appropriate Associate of Arts or Associate of Science pathway, students will have the necessary prerequisite courses to continue in their chosen disciplines. A pathway is not a major and will not be represented on the diploma.
