MBA sport management


I am thinking about doing a management degree, and I would like to combine the degree with my love of sport.

Are there any decent degrees, MBA or otherwise, that can help me get into sport management?

And what kind of jobs are possible after a degree like this? THANKS for any advice!

In general these sports-focused specialized degrees - MBAs and other master's - tend to be quite limiting in terms of career options. You'll have a degree in sports management, which may or may not help in other industries, and considering there are few jobs in sports management, many want a bit of flexibility after graduation, back up plans, all that.

I'd suggest exploring accredited, ranked general degree programs - MBA or a Master in Management, depending on your level of experience currently - and then trying to do an internship in a sports organization during the program. That will give you some relevant experience in sports management, but also give you more flexibility after graduation, should you need it.
