Chanel your passion for sports into a business career with great potential.
As a Sport Management major or minor, you'll understand the important role sports play at the collegiate, high school, professional, and recreational level. You'll be taught by professors who have worked in the fields of coaching, athletic administration, sports public relations, and business, as well as intern with Cleveland's professional teams (Browns, Cavaliers, or Indians), local high schools, and/or with Lake County Captains and the National Basketball Academy.
A dual major in Business Management is built right into the Sports Management curriculum. This blend is essential for understanding the business of the sports industry and best practices from the broader business world that you can apply to your sports niche.
More than three million jobs make up the traditional sports industry, including professional athletes, coaches and scouts, referees and officials, stadium and arena managers, agents, sports advertisers and marketers, broadcasters, fitness center and recreation managers, publicists, and sporting goods manufacturers and retailers.
