Athletics Administration

The Athletics Administration concentration in the M.S. in Sport Business program produces effective managers for organizations that oversee student-athlete programs giving them the tools they need to become leaders within school and collegiate athletics programs.

The Athletics Administration concentration aims to produce effective managers for organizations focused upon the student-athlete and the administrative operations necessary to sustain student-athlete programs.

With an emphasis on intercollegiate athletics, this concentration allows students to engage critical issues in governance, policy-making, facility operations, fundraising, development, and compliance that will ultimately prepare them for coveted leadership positions within school and collegiate athletics programs.

Our flexible schedule offers all courses after 5 p.m., allowing students to keep or take on full-time employment, or to pursue internships and assistantships during the day.

A typical full course load would include 9 credits each semester, allowing the majority of students to finish the program and earn a Sport Business Graduate Degree in 4 semesters. However, students who wish to take on larger course loads may be able to finish in as few as 12 months.
