Sport Management

The Business of Athletics

“A common mistake among those who work in sport is spending a disproportional amount of time on x’s and o’s as compared to time spent learning about people.” -Mike Krzyzewski

Get into the field of sport management. Students learn the business side of athletics through event marketing, financial management, personnel administration and more. Through business principles that apply in all settings, you will become well-rounded in your knowledge and experience.

Your Courses

A business focused curriculum dives right into the world of management. Align skills with experience as you collaborate with QU’s expansive athletic department to help manage games and events.

Becoming a Leader

My leadership roles taught me the importance of empathy, acceptance, and understanding. I learned so much about digging deeper into the motivations of others. That skill helps with everything I do now.
Jay Austin '15, Founder, InitialSignatures
