Business Administration, BAS
If you are an athlete or sports fan, you may be wondering if there is a way to combine your talent and passion with a future career. A career in sports management can bridge the gap. The Sports Management concentration focuses on the business and administration side of sports, fitness, and recreation industries.
Behind the players and games, there are a variety of business functions needed to ensure the games continue. It takes planning, marketing, venue management, public and community relations, accounting and more to support a thriving sports program. Sports administrators help oversee the daily operations, manage relationships, stimulate growth through strategic marketing campaigns, and much more.
This concentration is available to students in the BBA (Bachelor of Business Administration) and the BAS (Bachelor of Applied Science) degree programs.
This concentration must be completed in-person on the MUW campus.
In the Accelerated Bachelor/MBA Program, you will take undergraduate and graduate classes at the same time, substituting some required undergraduate classes with MBA classes. You can take up to 12 of the 36 hours required for the MBA early.
