At all levels, sport organizations are taking a more disciplined and business-based approach to manage their organizations and teams. These organizations need professionals who have the educational and professional acumen for business in order to succeed in the local, national or international sport industry.

The graduate certificate in sport management is designed for professionals who would like to strengthen their strategic decision-making skills and advance or begin their career within the sport industry.

Schedule and Class Participation

Classes meet on weeknight evenings and students choose how to participate with three options for attending classes: in-person, in real-time online or by watching a recording. All three options can be utilized throughout the program based on the most convenient option for your schedule. This format enables you to balance a busy schedule and earn a credential in less time than a traditional MBA or other master's program.
