Available on either a full-time or part-time basis, the Master of Science in Sports Management program has aligned its curriculum with the needs of the sports industry, with unique offerings in the areas of global sports, digital sports media and marketing, and sports analytics. These areas complement a strong foundation of core courses that equip graduates with the skills and training necessary to maintain an advantage in the highly competitive sports job market and, once hired, add immediate value to sports industry employers. Beyond establishing a strong business foundation, the curriculum and faculty will challenge you to deepen your understanding in three key areas:
The complex global sports landscape and the contrasts and comparisons of the sports business models around the world
The many connection points between the digital world and the sports world and the potential impact of disruptive technologies
The various ways to integrate the abundance of new data and information into decision processes that sports leaders face

Program Structure

The program requires 36 points for degree completion, or 12 3-point courses. For required courses, you will take four core courses that provide an overview of sports business concepts and practices and how they are applied in real-world contexts. In addition, you will choose one required course from each of three categories: Sports Marketing, Sports Analytics, and Sports Projects. For your remaining five courses, you may customize your focus by choosing electives in a variety of disciplines or choose courses from among three elective groupings, or areas of focus:

Global Sports

Sports Analytics

Digital Sports Media and Marketing

Internships and Work Opportunities

The internship component provides you with the option to take a deeper dive in a specific topic related to sports or complete an internship where you can learn and expand your network. A full-time internship is required for all full-time students and must be completed by the end of the spring semester. Students can work with our career specialist for guidance in mapping out internships.
