The sport industry has exploded over the past 15 years and has become increasingly more complex. The sport leadership and management graduate program is meant to help students navigate those complexities by becoming efficient managers and leaders. The program aims to not only explore leadership and management theories, but put them to practical use.
Students will analyze complex problems, help solve current issues for sports organizations, and collaborate to find creative solutions. This master’s degree in sport leadership and management is meant for anyone currently working in, or hoping to work in professional sports, collegiate or high school sports or intramurals, as well as those in the public and non-profit recreation sectors. Incoming students may have an undergraduate degree in any subject area.
Class Delivery Format
The program will employ a fall cohort model and a hybrid course delivery method. The hybrid method of delivery allows interested students to complete a majority of the classes online while still meeting on campus to interact with faculty and fellow students. On campus meeting times may vary among classes/professors, though faculty will provide specific meeting dates in a timely manner. Students enrolled can complete the M.S. degree in one calendar year.
Applicants must possess a bachelor’s degree (any major) from a regionally accredited college or university with an overall GPA of 3.00 or higher.
