Sport Management Major

A dynamic and diverse career field, sport management is an exciting major that prepares you for a career in the sport industry.

Strong academics

Relevant and real world focused, our broad-based program combines the strengths of a Baldwin Wallace liberal arts foundation with specialized coursework. Through hands-on initiatives and classroom studies, you'll gain the knowledge, skills and perspectives that will help you succeed.

Comprehensive studies

In addition to coursework in the sport management major, you'll complete an additional major in business or a minor in business, or public relations.


We are minutes away from three major professional sport organizations as well as a host of minor league teams and sporting/recreation venues. Many of our students participate in internships where they gain valuable networking contacts and resume-enhancing experiences.  In addition, BW has study abroad opportunities and student organizations that can help develop your career potential and expand your knowledge base.

Career versatile

Our graduates are well represented throughout the greater Cleveland area and across the nation. Careers in sport management include professional/amateur sports organizations as well as recreation facilities and more.
