MBA in Sports Management

MBA in Sports Management

Thinking about doing an MBA in Sports Management? Some students pursue an MBA in order to frame their passion for sports with practical applications in business. Who wouldn't want to apply their business skills to managing a football club or a baseball team? But beyond that, as the sports industry globalizes and integrates an increasing amount of technology, many sports organizations will need MBAs to manage various aspects of their businesses.

As such, these MBA programs will often cover many parts of the business, from marketing to analytics and innovation. Sports MBA programs tend to combine a healthy dose of general management content while also addressing emerging topics in the industry. Since the industry is so broad, many MBAs will delve into specialized topics, such as sports product management. Other MBAs will focus on specific areas of the sports industry, like football or horse racing, for example.

Some programs will also include an internship with a sports organization as well. 

Post-MBA careers in the sports industry can be varied. Some grads find work in sports teams, others in sports facilities. Still others will find jobs in athletic leagues.
