Sport Management Certificate

The Sport Management Graduate Certificate is designed to train students for management and leadership positions within the sport industry. With a focus on sport venue management, sport marketing, and strategic management of sport organizations, this graduate certificate program seeks to develop forward and innovative leaders for the future of the sport industry. This certificate program meets a growing interest in sport management. Sport as an industry continues to grow in scope and popularity, and the complexities of succeeding in the local, national, or international sport industry requires training and skills beyond the undergraduate level. Administrators, coaches, marketers, managers, and entrepreneurs interested in the sport industry will benefit from this graduate certificate.
