The sport management major in the Eberhardt School of Business prepares students to succeed in this dynamic business environment. The curriculum evolves in response to three tenets—the standards set by the Council on Sport Management Accreditation, strategies used by practitioners in the field, and the emerging research by Pacific’s faculty.
  • Each week, millions of fans attend professional, college and amateur sporting events across the country. The Super Bowl, Olympics, and World Cup are consistently the most-watched events on television. North American sports revenues are estimated to top $75 billion in 2020.
  • Sport also is an industry on the cutting edge of change and innovation. Teams in search of a competitive edge are pioneering the use of data analysis. Leagues are leveraging integrated marketing technologies to attract and retain fans. Manufacturers continuously develop new equipment to improve sport performance and safety.
  • Experiential learning provides immersive experiences that develop students' professional skills and networks to serve as a bridge to their careers. Pacific sport management students gain experiential learning through required internships, immersive class assignments with sport organizations and a sport-specific study abroad program. Students also have the opportunity to volunteer for events, visit stadiums and network with alumni throughout their time in the sport management major.
