Sport management is a field of education concerning the business aspects of sports and recreation. Some examples of sport managers include the front office system in professional sports, college sports managers, recreational sport managers, sports marketing, event management, facility management, sports economics, sport finance, and sports information.
Bachelor's and master's degrees in sport management are offered by many colleges and universities. A number of classes outside of sport management may be relevant to the field, including classes in management, marketing, business administration, and accounting. Internships may also open opportunities within the field.
In America, jobs in sport management include working for professional programs like the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, and other professional or non-professional sport leagues in terms of marketing, health, and promotions.
