Sport management majors will demonstrate mastery of concepts
crucial to both theoretical and applied work in business and management. Upon
completion of basic courses in economics, accounting, marketing, and
communication, upper-level students will master the application of these basic
business principles to a wide variety of sport settings via courses such as
sport and law, risk management, organizational behavior in sport, sport
sociology, sport psychology, and sport marketing and management. Upon
graduation, students enter careers in sport administration,
sport marketing, facilities management, and commercial sports. They are also prepared to enter graduate programs in global sports business, sport management, and business administration.
The 18-credit sport management minor is designed to give students majoring in other disciplines such as business, communications, labor relations, and psychology an opportunity to learn about the sport industry. Students will be exposed to such areas as marketing, administration, law, psychology, and sociology as they relate to the business of sport.
Students from any school within Rutgers University can choose to minor in sport management. Students in the School of Arts and Sciences or the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences will use the MyMajor
system to submit the minor declaration request. Students from other schools within Rutgers can declare a minor in sport management only with approval of the dean of their school.
