Earning a minor in Sport Management will prepare students for a future in the sport industry. The field of sport management includes career opportunities in a variety of different sport settings, such as professional sports, collegiate athletics, intramural sports, recreational sports, private sport clubs, sport marketing firms, and high school athletic programs. Since the main emphasis of this field of study is the application of business principles and concepts to the sport environment, students within this minor will learn the foundations of marketing, facility management, legal issues, public relations, and finance as they relate to the business side of sports. Students who would like to include Sport Management as part of their curriculum may add it as a minor to accompany their chosen major – which may be in any academic discipline.
