Minor in Sports Business

The Nistler College of Business and Public Administration provides undergraduate students with the opportunity to earn a minor in sports business. Students receive a conceptual grounding in sports-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 sports career choice of interest.  Internship experiences also expose students to sports 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.
