Sport Management

Learning Beyond the Classroom

Students majoring in Sport Management have a number of opportunities to enhance their learning beyond the classroom. They tour sports facilities, hear from guest speakers and have the opportunity to join our Sport Management Club. 

The Sport Management Club provides several unique opportunities for students who are interested in Sport Management:

  • It connects freshmen to senior students on a level not always possible during classes
  • It allows students to explore interests outside of classes, which could be important in deciding what to study and what to pursue as a career
  • It helps students connect with external stakeholders and groups such as alumni and national professional organizations
