Why Study Sports Management at Westminster?

  • Interest in sports management and positions in the field have been growing throughout the United States and Canada over the last 15 years.
  • An increased number of professional and college teams are looking for graduates trained in the sports field.

Major Highlights

Those who pursue a sports management major will not only take course work within the management field but also courses in marketing, accounting, webpage design, either advertising or consumer behavior, and an internship.

Cool Classes

The capstone class will focus on professional, collegiate, and individual sports which successfully utilize traditional marketing methods and programs.

Career Opportunities

The demand for graduates of these programs is increasing as teams find more competition for the consumer’s leisure dollar. At one time, major sports had their seasons to themselves but that has drastically changed as seasons and franchises have expanded. Successful franchises now depend on successful management more than ever.

“This is a major which allows student to make a hobby their vocation.  They can do what they love and still find a job.” Dr. Bill Carner
