Program Description and Admission Requirements

Master of Science in Sport Management  

The Master of Science in Sport Management (SPMG) is a comprehensive business and management program that is designed as a full-time, 30 credit-hour program. This program is designed to directly meet the growing needs and demands of national sport organizations, multinational corporations and businesses seeking to hire an educated and culturally aware work force prepared to work in a diverse and rapidly changing sport economy.

The M.S. in Sport Management is designed to allow for validation with the appropriate academic accrediting body in North America, the Commission on Sport Management Accreditation (COSMA), a joint commission created by the North American Society for Sport Management and the National Association for Sport and Physical Education.

Each course offered in the curriculum is available in the classroom on campus and online. Many courses also are offered during the summer.

The Master of Science program in International Sport Management (ISPM) is designed to focus on International Sport Management as a distinct discipline, meeting the needs of professionals who seek to work in an internationally focused organizational environment that demands diverse intercultural competencies and skills.

It is a 30 credit-hour program where students complete 24 credit hours of course work on the SUNY Cortland campus and an international project as part of their course of study.
