Preparation in sport marketing, sales, finance, ethics, sport communications, economics, law, operations, planning, and program leadership fosters the skills that enhance students’ acquisition and advancement in sport management careers. An integral part of the program is the opportunity to complete two field experiences in sport organizations: a part-time practicum and a full-time internship.
