(Purchase, NY: September 14, 2017) Manhattanville College’s School of Business (MSB) today announced that its Sport Business Management master’s program will add entertainment management as an additional degree option to its successful graduate curriculum.

The new M.S. in Sport Business and Entertainment Management program will provide a broad business management foundation meant for future business leaders in both the sport and entertainment industries. It has been designed for students to tailor their focus, both in the selection of required core courses and by creating a customized program of study with electives in a chosen concentration. The newly enhanced program will be available to graduate students in the spring of 2018 and applications are now being accepted.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary this month, the Sport Business Management program has graduated more than 300 students and has turned out dozens of outstanding young men and women who are now working in various areas of the sports industry.

“Our new program will be appealing to those who want to work in sports, those who are interested in other entertainment areas, and those who have interest in both,” said Dave Torromeo, long-time executive director of the program. “Our students will be able to leverage the prestige of their Manhattanville degree along with the powerful connections of the School of Business and our exceptional faculty and advisory boards to find their niche in the sport and entertainment industries.”

Students will be required to take seven core courses (21 credits) such as “Law and Ethics in Sports” or “Law and Ethics in Entertainment” plus four concentration courses (12 credits), and a three-credit capstone project. New adjunct faculty specializing in entertainment have been added to the School of Business to teach the new discipline.
