Why Choose the Sport Management Program?

This Master of Arts in Physical Education: Sport Management program provides professional preparation for management and leadership positions with professional sports teams, intercollegiate programs at colleges and universities, interscholastic athletics, and amateur athletic organizations. Although we have a program of study for our students, we remain flexible so that students can receive the education that is best suited for their future careers.

Physical Education: Sport Management is a growing and exciting field dealing with the business aspects of sports and recreation. Professionals in the sport management field range from public relations specialists to business, and from facilities managers to compliance managers. However, just as with sports itself, competition is stiff for the best sport management positions, and demand is highest for well-trained professionals. Wright State University's Physical Education: Sport Management Program offers a solid educational base in the fundamentals of sport management for students interested in any one of a variety of sports-related careers.
