In addition to the current Sport Business Management Master of Science program, several ancillary programs are being developed at Manhattanville such as the Sport Business Institute.
The Institute will serve as a networking component that will enhance the experience for students, professors and sports industry executives. An abundance of sport business industry executives live and/or work in Fairfield and Westchester counties and these additional programs will offer various professional services.
As part of this philosophy, The Center of Ethics in Sport at Manhattanville (CESAM) has also been created. The CESAM Mission will be to examine the perennial issues and questions confronting the sports industry that impact conduct, character and community and to challenge individuals to maintain the ideal social and spiritual conditions in furthering the cause of athletics.
The Sport Business Institute under the auspices of the School of Graduate & Professional Studies is in the creation stage and will offer various networking and public events that support our mission. In addition to the current Sport Business Management program, offering a Master of Science, we are initiating programs to enhance the experience for students, professors and sports industry executives who are not involved with the program. Fairfield and Westchester counties offer a plethora of sport business industry executives who live and work in the vicinity. Several sports industry associates and others who are currently participating in the program as adjunct professors have set out to establish these entities.
The Institute will offer a consortium including:
Provide a professional network, enhance our SBM program as well as gaining notoriety for the college
Trade association database
Web pages dedicated to information about the institute with tie ins to SBM program
CENTER FOR ETHICS IN SPORT AT MANHATTANVILLE
As a component of this institute, we are in the early, yet exciting stages of creating the Center of Ethics in Sport hosted at Manhattanville and John Vorperian, Esq., one of our professors and assistant county attorney in Westchester will serve as coordinator of that group.
The CESAM's Mission
To examine the perennial issues and questions confronting the sports industry which impact conduct, character and community. To challenge individuals to maintain the ideal social and spiritual conditions in furthering the cause of athletics. We believe when one acts with integrity and courage, those qualities foster true success for the person and society.
How does CESAM achieve its goals?
We recognize those figures that blaze best practices in the ever-growing world of sports business. We foster open, honest, dialogue to help shine the path towards good management policies. We seek and include all areas of education towards discovering and upholding these high standards.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR:
Topic/areas of discussion:
" What roles should the league, teams, and coaches play in the on-field vs. off field activities of it's players?"
"What impact does individual athlete performance on the field affect off field treatment?"
"What is the role and rule of law vs. the rules and roles of league and teams? (e.g. hockey player violence: what is the difference between assault and battery, and being part of the game?
"Regarding punishment and fines......does the punishment (ever?) fit the crime?" Is it effective in curtailing violence, etc.?"
