Best Colleges for Sports Management

For teenage sports fans, it’s hard to imagine a more exciting major than sports management, a relatively new field that has grown in popularity in recent years. As part of a bachelor’s degree in sports management, students will take courses in business and finance along with more athletics-centered classes in sports psychology, sports law, and sports media. Many grads go on to work in variety of capacities for professional and collegiate sports teams while other work in parks and recreation, youth sports coordination, or in sports and health club management. Some sports management programs are offered through highly-selective institutions like Rice or the University of Michigan, but the vast majority of schools with stellar sports management degrees accept more students than they reject.
