A Word from Our Program Chair
“The way the sport management team supports our students is by working with them individually to find out what they are most interested in. As they progress, classes typically get smaller. So there is even more one-on-one interaction with professors.”
Dr. Deron Grabel
Program Chair, Sport Management
