Sports Management Certificate

 

The sports management certificate program is a customized nine-unit program available to students who are majoring in an Eller BSBA Major. The sports management certificate may be added to any Eller BSBA major.

The Sports Management Program has been developed by the Department of Management and Organizations in response to a growing demand for courses related to sports industries. Completion of these classes will provide a resume differentiator and facilitate job opportunities in the sports industry. Faculty with sports industry contacts and guest speakers from professional sports organizations are paired with experiential learning and study trips to sporting events.
