What you can do with a sport management degree?

1) Become a coach or athletic director

  • Impact future athletes. One of the most important ways to impact the next generation of athletes is to help them develop their athletic abilities.

Or, step it up a notch and become a nationally recognized coach in the sport of your choice!
  • Athletic administration. If you’re more inclined towards the administrative side, a career as an athletic director might be calling your name. You'll learn to manage sports programs, budgets, and facilities, ensuring student-athletes have the resources they need to succeed.

One cool aspect of this program is that you can make an impact right away! Our very own Cameron Ingram (a 2020 Sport Management grad) has been recognized as the youngest athletic director in Ohio, and you could be next!

2) Professional sports opportunities

Ever dream of working for an NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL, or other professional sports team? Our Sport Management degree provides you with the expertise needed to land a job in professional sports. From marketing and ticket sales to player development and event management, you'll be ready to contribute to the success of your favorite team.

3) Sports Merchandising

Another important aspect of the sports world is equipment and supplies. You could work for a major sports provider, such as Wilson, Spalding, or Adidas, either developing strategic new products to make life better for athletes or running big events for these top brands. By understanding the intricacies of the sports world, you’ll be ready to jump into a rewarding career.

And the list goes on!
