Don’t just stand on the sidelines — drive for success with a degree in sport management. Prepare for a career on the business side of the athletics and fitness industry. With its three major league teams and four Division I NCAA schools, Nashville is the perfect city for you to score shadowing experience, internships and jobs.
Study in a program that provides you with a comprehensive business education and the added exercise science knowledge to elevate your expertise. Hone skills and gain experience in the business, management and marketing aspects of the athletics and fitness industries.
Our unique degree is unlike anything you’ll find in middle Tennessee. Once you’ve learned all you can from our experienced and innovative faculty, go on to pursue an MBA or head straight into the workforce — you’ll be a strong candidate for whatever path you choose.
All students majoring in sport management must achieve a "C" or above in all department courses required for the sport management major.
Student to faculty ratio
With a top-tier university education on your resume, you’ll be in high demand, whether you choose to launch your career or begin graduate school. Most of our programs have a placement rate of at least 90 percent within six months of graduation.
Learn from award-winning, experienced faculty who actually care about you. Our small class sizes allow us to get to know you personally. We lead an approachable community within our respective programs. Our faculty connections are the experts on their subject matter, too.
A big city. An even bigger opportunity. We consider Nashville an extension of our classroom, and as a leading city in many industries, that means you’ll gain experience and insight you won’t find anywhere else.
