A dream career for some people — perhaps you? — is working for a professional sports team. Or, maybe managing a local sports recreation center or promoting sporting events or being an athletic director intrigues you. We’ve designed our sport management program to prepare students, who don’t wish to teach, to work in dynamic athletic administration careers like these.
Our curriculum draws from a wide spectrum of course disciplines, including sales and marketing, business and psychology to give you a deeper understanding of health concepts and their role in today’s marketplace. You’ll have opportunities to practice what you learn in the classroom in site observations and internships at Chicago-area corporate wellness centers, sports medicine clinics, health clubs and schools.
