The Sport Management (SM) program prepares students for careers in the global sports industry. Our curriculum explores the cultural and business impact of sports -- through hands-on, real-world case studies and consulting projects led by our world-renowned faculty.
Our students are actively engaged with our faculty, academic advisors, and alumni mentors. This leads to dynamic internships, as well as other outstanding professional development activities.
SM majors also participate in -- and often lead -- student-run campus groups, such as the Sport Business Association (SBA) and the Michigan Sport Business Conference (MSBC), ranked the #1 U.S. sports business conference by Forbes.
Upon graduation many of our students will begin careers at sport organizations and corporate businesses, while others will pursue post-graduate studies in business, law, accounting, and urban planning.
Our graduates work in the front offices of the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, and MLS; with professional sports teams like the Detroit Red Wings, New York Mets, and Milwaukee Bucks; within agencies like IMG, Creative Artists Agency, and William Morris Endeavor; and with industry-leading organizations like ESPN, the NCAA, The New York Times, Under Armour, and many more.
