Academic Program Mission Statement:
Sport Management encompasses planning, promotion and operation of sport organizations and events in settings ranging from the major league to recreational levels. The Sport Management Program provides students with the competencies, knowledge, professionalism and experiences needed to compete in the sport industry’s global environment. Solid business skills are the foundation of sport management, and successful careers require not only practical skills, but also an understanding of economics, communications, globalization and social context. The Bachelor of Science in Business Management with a concentration in Sport Management prepares students for sport industry careers or graduate study by allowing them to focus on specialized areas of interest, while grounding them with a broad perspective on the industry. An internship and additional opportunities available in Boston’s exciting sport market further enhance students’ professional development.
