I would like to gain experience in different aspects of the sport world, starting in sales and eventually enjoy being an executive recruiter for a professional sports team.
Sport Business Careers
The sport industry is continually growing, and so are the number of individuals attracted to study and meaningful work in this expanding field. Students in Mount Union’s sport business program put theory into practice everyday, gaining hands-on knowledge in preparation for career success in a number of areas.
• Professional sport organizations
• Fitness clubs and YMCAs
• Event management and support
• National governing bodies
It is recommended that sport business students supplement the major by selecting either business administration or media studies as their minor, depending on individual interest or career goals. And, when it comes time to finding internships, sources for networking and jobs after graduation, an outstanding group of alumni in the field of sport business is waiting to lend a hand.
