PHYSICAL EDUCATION, RECREATION AND RECREATION THERAPY
SPORTS MANAGEMENT CONCENTRATION


The purpose of the sport management concentration is to prepare students for a baccalaureate degree in athletics, sports and recreation management. Also, to provide students with the educational and practical experiences for careers in sport management.

 

Over the years, a career in Sport Management has gained acceptance as a major professional degree leading to a satisfying career.
The career of Sport Management can be defined as people who have sports background experience, management experience and/or a business background. Every professional sports team has people that bring these skills to the organization.

 



 




For example, the New York Yankees, from the owners to the general manager to the baseball manager, are involved in some form of sport management. Not only do professional sports organizations provide jobs in sports management, so do college campus athletic departments. For example, college athletic departments provide positions as athletic directors, assistant directors, intramural sports managers, club sports managers, sports information directors, and sports facility operations managers.
 

In addition, a Sport Management degree can also be useful in seeking a position with the Parks and Recreation Departments, YMCA's, and Community Sports Centers (Boys' Club) or students can start their own specific sports business. In summary, a degree in Sport Management can provide many career job opportunities dependent on an individual's personal career interests and goals.
