A degree in the Sport Management concentration will prepare students for a baccalaureate degree in athletics, sports and recreation management. Also, it will provide students with the required educational courses and practical experience for careers in sport management. Students can transfer to Long Island University-Brooklyn Branch, Mercy College, St. John's University, and the BA CUNY program.

__________________________________________________________________________

In recent years, a career in Sport Management can be defined as including people who have a sports background experience, management experience, and a business background. Every professional sports team has people that bring these skills to the organization. To prepare for a degree in the Sport Management program, students will take courses in Facilities Planning in Sports, Introduction to Sports Management, Sports & American Society, and Fieldwork Internship. Students will complete 100 hours of supervised fieldwork internship in a College setting, YMCA, Community or Parks and Recreation Department.

 

__________________________________________________________________________
A career in sport management has gained acceptance as a major professional degree leading to a satisfying career. Professional sports teams (Yankees, Mets, Knicks, and Rangers) and semi-professional teams provide jobs in sport management. College athletic departments also provide positions as athletic director, assistant director, intramural and club sports manager, sports information director, and sports facility operations manager.

The Sport Management degree can be used in sports business, marketing, and administration in terms of operating a sports team or sport facility. Sport management students can also start their own specific sports business.

.



A Sport Management degree can also be useful in seeking a position with the Parks and Recreation Departments, YMCA's, and Community Sports Centers (Boys' Club). In summary, a degree in Sport Management can provide many career job opportunities, this is dependent on an individual's personal career interests and goals.
