Why Choose Sports Management?

Interested in a sports-related career? Enroll in Wright State’s sports management program, which offers a solid educational base in the fundamentals of sports management.

You can join a growing and exciting field dealing with the business aspects of sports and recreation. Your career options range from public relations specialist to marketing director, and from facilities manager to compliance coordinator. However, just as with sports itself, competition is stiff for the best sports management positions, and demand is highest for well-trained professionals.  

Want to pursue a master's degree focused on this topic? Consider the Master of Arts in Physical Education: Sport Management program.
