Bachelor of Science in Sport Management

Turn your love of sports into a rewarding career in a fast-growth industry of sports management. Almost all sport entities— from little league to college athletics, sport apparel companies, and professional leagues—need the skills of those who have a sports management background.

While most sports management programs focus on how sport entities manage processes in a steady state with little change, Becker’s Bachelor of Science in Sport Management program will be prepared for the future in which you will need to navigate disruption and lead change. Students enrolled in the Bachelor of Science in Sport Management program become well-versed in how sports create value by studying companies such as Under Armour, Nike, and the NFL, as well as become familiar with the governance of NCAA and high school athletics.
