Through our programs, students develop an appreciation of the contributions of physical activity and sport to health by developing personalized exercise programs.Sport Management offers specialized training and education for individuals seeking careers in the sport business industry. The Sport Management curriculum is designed to meet the NASPE/NASSM approval requirements: sociocultural dimensions, management and leadership, ethics, marketing, communications, budget and finance, legal aspects, economics, and governance.
