The Sport Management (SM) program prepares students for careers in the global sport industry. Our curriculum explores the cultural and business impact of sport through hands-on, real-world case studies and consulting projects led by our world-renowned faculty.
Our students are actively engaged with our faculty, academic and career advisors, and alumni mentors. This leads to dynamic internships, as well as other outstanding professional development activities.
Sport Management majors lead and participate in student-run campus organizations. Learn more about them on our Sport Management Student Groups page.
Upon graduation many of our students will begin careers at sport organizations and corporate businesses, while others will pursue post-graduate studies in business, law, accounting, and urban planning.
Our graduates work in the front offices of the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, and MLS; with professional sports teams like the Detroit Red Wings, New York Mets, and Milwaukee Bucks; within agencies like Creative Artists Agency, Wasserman, and Endeavor; and with industry-leading organizations like ESPN, the NCAA, The New York Times, Nike, and many more.
