Re: Ohio MBA sports management

The dual MBA and Master of Sports Administration Program at Ohio University prepare students for leadership positions in the growing sport and entertainment industries.

About the dual degree program

It is dual degree program.

The dual degree combines the business teachings of the MBA program with the specific concepts and issues of these industries.

During the first year, members of the dual degree program take MBA core components and fully participate in the Voinovich Center practicum experiences during their MBA year.

In the summer following their MBA study, students enroll in summer internships based on career interests.

In their second year, students enter the sports administration portion of the program and are required to take one mandatory course during the fall and spring quarters.

The remaining hours are made up of elective classes identified by the student and his/her academic advisor.

The interdisciplinary approach allows students to take up to 34 hours of elective credit during the year.

This freedom to choose classes allows students to focus on building further foundations and knowledge needed in their desired career field.

Classes such as sports and consumers, facility management, sports finance, ticket operations, athletic fundraising, and governance in intercollegiate athletics offer students a wide variety of educational opportunities.

Learning also takes place outside the classroom as students work on class projects, such as the program's annual spring symposium or with opportunities by the Ohio University Athletic Department.

Many individuals also choose to do internships during the winter break.

In recent years, students interned the Baseball Winter Meetings, the Rose Bowl, the Sugar Bowl, and the NCAA Soccer Championships.
