The ETSU graduate Sport Management Concentration provides students with the opportunity to critically examine a wide variety of sport industry-related themes and issues. Our program emphasizes both academic preparation along with required real-world practical field experiences.
The curriculum examines three main segments of the sport industry (performance, production, promotion), and it encompasses all levels of sport: youth, high school, collegiate, professional, amateur, competitive, non-competitive, recreational, private, and nonprofit/profit organizations.
Although the number of potential careers within athletics is virtually limitless, here are just a few examples:
Each of the following items are required for admission into the graduate-level Sport Management Program. The review committee considers everything equally, so being particular strong in one area could definitely help you gain admission despite a weakness in one or more of the other categories.
Students who are unable to meet “regular admission” requirements, may apply for conditional admission.
