This 36-credit MS in Sport Business Management degree program provides individuals with the necessary knowledge and business skills to assume a leadership role in sports management. The course work provides an interdisciplinary approach to the study of sport management intended to provide a thorough foundation in sport and business while allowing flexibility for students to explore a wide variety of opportunities within the field. The program includes an internship to assist students in preparing for middle and upper level positions within a variety of markets, including but not limited to: professional sport, intercollegiate athletics, and amateur and youth athletic organizations.
Students who currently work in the industry or have significant experience can use that as their internship requirement. For those who do the internship, a management team helps facilitate the process, so you are not on your own in finding the internship, the capstone experience for them in their Master's program.
The student body currently consists of 30% individuals in the industry, 30% career changer types and 40% are students who have recently graduated from their undergraduate college or university. We have had students come from institutions such as Harvard, Boston College, North Carolina, Bates, Iona, Fairfield and naturally, Manhattanville as well as others. Our alumni have jobs with the USTA (several), Yankees, Mets, Rangers, Jets, Giants, Islanders, Olympics, venues and a myriad of associations and agencies.
Classes meet on traditional fall/spring semester schedule and in summer sessions on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 4:20 PM to 6:50 PM and from 7PM to 9:30 PM.
