Sport management is a field that focuses on the business attributes of sports, and many in this industry have obtained a sport management degree. Individuals working in this industry are concerned with the planning, organizing, managing, and budgeting aspects of a department or organization whose main purpose is related to sports or physical activities.

Professionals in this career handle the behind the scenes features, such as finance, marketing, leadership, facility management, and event management. Sports management is applied in nearly all types of levels of sports, including municipal recreation, private organizations, social organizations, government athletic activities, amateur sport, college-level athletics, and professional sports.

“The Sport Management Department continues to operate from a foundation of high-quality educational standards, integrating professional experiences and real-world training, while honoring our Father with biblically-sound, Christ-centered approaches,” said Dean of the College of Wellness & Sport Professions Dr. Jeff Briggs.

He said, “These practices supported by committed faith-based Christian faculty yield high energy, industry-prepared graduates. NGU’s sport management program places graduates in the Sport Profession near 90% annually and remains committed to the mission and vision of NGU.”
