“What I like most about the Sports Management program is our involvement on campus and all of the career opportunities that are presented to us. The department has a great relationship with the athletic department and allows sports management majors the chance to receive hours of practical experience in sports. This experience not only looks good on a resume, but it also lets students get a feel for the industry and see if they are compatible with the career.”
