Our students gain valuable experience working, interning, and volunteering on many significant service-learning projects for local and area agencies. We utilize many guest lecturers from sport business organizations each semester to speak with our students about how to excel as a responsible business professional in the sport industry.
Through our Sport Management program, students learn the most current trends, techniques, and strategies in management and marketing technology, ticket sales, sponsorships, customer relations, event planning, sports facility management, and analytics. Students will also understand and practice the essentials of leadership, communication, and teamwork skills that are essential to success in this field.
