The Department of Sport Management offers a 125-credit Sport Management Bachelor of Science degree, and a 125-credit Sport Analytics Bachelor of Science degree.

The Bachelor of Science (BS) in the Sport Management curriculum combines department-specific courses with professional electives and liberal arts requirements, providing students with the tools to pursue a career in sport management or graduate study. Coursework covers such areas as business, marketing, management, communications, sponsorship, societal influences and impacts, event planning, and law. The 125-credit program requires all students to select an academic minor and tailor their studies according to their professional interests. The required 12-credit capstone provides students with valuable industry experience.

The Bachelor of Science (BS) in the Sport Analytics program is designed to provide students with the educational knowledge, skill development, research skills and experiential sport industry background to excel in the specialized field of sport analytics. Instruction centers around core curriculum content areas including research methodology, organizational theory, management theory, technology, sport economics, database management, finance, and computer programming integral to sport analytics. The goal is to prepare graduates to be able to not only think conceptually and analytically but also to be able to apply principles to real issues within sport organizations.


The Falk College is conveniently located near Syracuse University’s JMA Wireless Dome, the only multi-purpose domed sports facility on a college campus. The cornerstone of the Syracuse University sport management program has been its multitude of experiential learning opportunities associated with its theory-to-practice approach to teaching. In conjunction with the Syracuse Athletics Department, the JMA Wireless Dome is a ‘living laboratory’ for students.
