I worked in the sport industry for several years before coming to Lindenwood to work on my Masters Degree in Sport Management.  The program provided me a terrific opportunity to apply my real world experiences with the teaching concepts.  In addition to the classroom instruction, the diverse backgrounds of the faculty really enhanced my experience at Lindenwood and made the learning environment even more enjoyable.  Most importantly, the Sport Management Program provided me with a new network of contacts and ultimately a new career in intercollegiate athletics.

The quality of Lindenwood’s Sport Management interns has been exceptional.  We have gained valuable help during our busy summer months and have been able to provide our intern with a meaningful real-life experience in event management.  We are always on the lookout for well-rounded students whose career goals are to succeed in the nonprofit or business world.  Lindenwood’s Sport Management program is our best resource.

Lindenwood’s Sport Management graduate program provides a tremendous opportunity to learn both the macro and micro facets of the sport industry. Classes cover a wide variety of sport related subjects including sport law, sport management and sport marketing, while also providing a foundation in business principles.
Through my studies at Lindenwood, I have acquired a broad skill set that is directly applicable to working in sports. Perhaps most importantly, Lindenwood’s Sport Management degree gives its graduates outstanding networking options and a foundation to succeed in a dynamic industry.   The degree requires a practicum, which I have fulfilled via an internship with the Missouri Valley Conference – an opportunity I likely never would have had if not for the connections garnered via Lindenwood’s Sport Management program.
