Sports management

Definition of a Sports Management Degree


A sports management degree prepares a student to work on the business end of sports. This may include working as the manager of a sports team or working in the front office of an organization. Sports management degrees are fairly new. Previously those working in sports management had MBAs or went to law school before starting their careers.

Digital media is a growing portion of sports management, as all major businesses are tapping in to digital marketing and social networking for branding purposes. 


Please note that there is a wide range of degree categories in Sports, ranging from education to medicine, psychology to media, entrepreneurship, event planning to clothing design, and well beyond, so choose your college according to what specifically you want to do in or with the industry.  So the SUNY Fashion Institute of Technology might be the perfect place to study for sport teams' clothing designs or material sciences involved or development, yet they would not be listed under sports management.
