The sport management major at Springfield College will train you in all facets of the sports industry to prepare you for a career in the continually growing international business of sport management.  The operations of sport programs have become more sophisticated and complex. In order to effectively manage these sports programs and facilities, you’ll need to be familiar with the  intricacies of sport activities and also be effective as business professionals—the exact formula that Springfield College takes to educate its sport management students.

The sport management major is designed to provide you with the opportunity to develop expertise in business management with an orientation toward the world of sport. You’ll be able to hone your skills and expertise through internships with organizations such as the Boston Celtics, NFL Headquarters, ESPN, Miami Dolphins, Harvard University Athletics, Travelers Championship,  Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, and more.
