The College of Business and Public Administration provides undergraduate students with the opportunity to earn a minor in sport business. Students receive a conceptual grounding in sport-specific business thought through coursework as well as experience in the sports field through internship opportunities. Students are encouraged to select a major which corresponds to a sport career choice of interest. Options are covered in the Introduction to Sport Business course requirement. Internship experiences also expose students to sport business career options and serve as a networking tool so vital in the sports industry. Students will be assisted in the identification of internship options; however, students are ultimately responsible for acquiring a meaningful internship position. Students may also be required to relocate for the duration of the internship.
