Doug Blais '88 and '90

Do you love sports?  Would you like to turn your passion into a career?  A master’s in Sport
Management allows you to do just that.  The Sport Management Department has been awarding degrees for 25 years. During that time we have established a strong alumni network with numerous industry contacts.

Your classes will be taught by doctoral-qualified faculty with areas of sport expertise in international business, licensing, marketing, sales, strategic alliances, sponsorship, event management and economic impact, among others.

You will take 12 graduate classes that focus specifically on the business of sport.  As part of those classes, you will have a choice of three sport management electives allowing you to concentrate in your desired field.

We encourage you to take advantage of our vast network of industry contacts when you participate in your for-credit internship. Our Sport Management department internship coordinator will personally oversee your internship and coach you in combining theory with practice.

The sport industry is the sixth leading industry in the United Sates, with annual revenue over $250 billion. As the industry becomes more sophisticated, the demand for highly trained professionals will continue to rise.  Put yourself ahead of the field with a master’s in Sport Management from Southern New Hampshire University.

Best regards,

Dr. Mark Hecox
Chair, Sport Management Department
Southern New Hampshire University
