If sports is your thing, why not make it your career? You don’t have to be a superstar athlete or coach to do it. The multibillion-dollar sports industry needs savvy individuals to work in sport management. Sports isn’t all about the athletes, coaches and competition. It’s also about business. Every sport and athletic enterprise needs people skilled in management, operations, public relations, marketing and sales to run things.

At ONU, we’ll prepare you for a successful career in sport management. Our solid curriculum includes courses in sport management, sports law and ethics, communication studies and business. We also offer you the opportunity to complete a minor in an area that interests you, all while graduating in four years. We provide real-world learning through required internships and practicums within the ONU athletics program. With these experiences, you’ll learn to communicate, problem-solve, collaborate and lead. These skills are in demand in high school, collegiate and professional sports.

From day one, you’ll be part of our family. You’ll enjoy small class sizes and amazing friendships. Our dedicated professors will get to know you. They will support you in your coursework, internships, and post-graduate or career preparations. They will become personally invested in your success – in college and beyond.

Upon graduation, you’ll be ready to carve out a career in the exciting world of sport management!
