The Economics and Business Department Sports Management track in the Management major provides students with a strong background in both management and sports related subjects, enabling them to analyze and succeed in the challenging environment of both amateur and professional sports. This track prepares students for management positions within the sports industry as well as the non-profit sector. This innovative curriculum will allow students to pursue a variety of career paths in the field as well as provide a foundation needed for future graduate studies. The track is structured exactly the same way as the other two existing management tracks, i.e. marketing and organizational leadership, but it requires an internship that provides an extensive experience within a professional setting. Students who pursue this program at Moravian are awarded a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in management.
