Sport Management Major

The sport management major prepares learners for a leadership role within the ever-growing world of sports. Behind the players and the games, there are managers, accountants, marketing managers, sales people, operations managers, and coaches needed to organize and operate sport organizations. Taught from a biblical perspective–integrating faith and practice–courses equip learners with knowledge of the best current practices in business and sport management, skills that are essential in the marketplace, and biblical character development opportunities to become Christian servant leaders with strong ethical and moral standards to manage and market sport organizations, media, events, and facilities.
