The sports industry is the eleventh largest in the United States, generating over $213 billion per year. It is a diverse and growing field, incorporating multiple sectors including professional teams, public and private organizations, media and entertainment agencies, and facilities and events operations. Professional managers with industry-specific skills are employed in every sector of the field and have a range of job titles.
Though jobs as sports managers are plentiful, it is a competitive field. Columbia's master's degree in Sports Management expands professional opportunities by providing students with advanced, industry-specific training in finance, sports personnel management, law, sports marketing, and facility and event superintendence.
