The Bachelor of Science program in Sports and Entertainment Management provides students with an education that will allow them to transform their interest in the sports and entertainment field into a rewarding career and life’s work. Our objective is also to provide students the opportunity to acquire a multitude of skills that would be applicable and transferable to many diverse career paths.

The Sports and Entertainment Management major focuses on the business of Sports and Entertainment, including an in depth analysis of such area as Marketing, Data Analysis, Finance, Fundraising, Accounting, Professional Communications, Teamwork & Collaboration, Project Management, Legal Issues, and Macroeconomic trends as they specifically relate to each student’s specific area of interest. Thus, students in this major do not have to be practicing athletes, musicians, dancers, artists or entertainers.
