Sport Management Concentration

Sports Sympsium

Our Students regularly attend career development and networking events such as the ISU symposium and the ISBC

Sport management is a multifaceted domain offering diverse employment opportunities in a wide range of sport, fitness, and recreation organizations. 

The undergraduate concentration in sport management is designed to help students develop a foundational understanding and comprehension of management concepts and principles essential to organizational success in the sport and fitness industry. Students take a core of courses in the Department of Kinesiology and Sports Studies, while also completing a minor in business management from the Lumpkin College of Business and Applied Sciences.

The culminating experience is the completion of a for-credit internship with a sport organization that meets the interests and career goals of the student. The completion of the internship provides an invaluable, experiential learning opportunity for the student, where theories and principles learned in the classroom can be practically applied in real-world employment situation.
