Sport/Entertainment Management Programs
Sports Management prepares students to become professional managers in areas such as sports marketing, sports media, amateur and professional athletics, and sports and entertainment event planning. Coursework focuses on key business skills with specific application to the sports industry. Entertainment management professionals promote people, products and events related to recreation: books, film, games, music, sports and much more. Some work as agents, representing artists or athletes; others find employment in the marketing department of a movie studio or sports team. An associates or bachelor’s degree in sports management or business entertainment can qualify you for entry-level assistant positions and serve as a gateway to further education.
