Sport Management Jobs

Sport Management Overview


Sports Management is a broad field that involves all aspects of business as it relates to sports. Agents and talent recruiters are high-profile positions within the domain, but Sports Management jobs are quite diverse and cover a wide range of focuses including:• Team management• Event management• Facility management• Sports marketing• Sports economics and financeIn both professional and amateur sports, there is a large group of Sports Management professionals working to facilitate the league, a particular match or even an individual athlete’s progress. The specific responsibilities of a Sports Management professional are generally related to his or her chosen subfield.

Sport Management Education Requirements


A high school diploma is usually the minimum requirement for Sport Management jobs. Many colleges and universities offer Sports Management programs for both bachelor's and master's degrees. Professionals in the field require strong abilities when it comes to oral expression, oral comprehension, speech clarity, written expression and written comprehension. Sports Management professionals also require an eclectic array of knowledge, which often includes education and training, psychology and counseling, and customer and personal service. Previous experience is not necessarily required for an entry-level position, and proven people skills in other fields often translate.

Sport Management Job Market


Approximately 130,000 people work in the spectator sports industry, which is where many of the most coveted Sports Management positions are. That number is trending down slightly over the last decade, and the statistics reveal that much of the available income is shared across a small group. People new to the field must often be willing to accept unpaid internships and entry-level positions to get their foot in the door. Other management positions would include Student Brand Management.

Sport Management Salary


The median hourly wage for the field is $12.36, and the annual mean wage is $40,550. Compared to many business fields, income potential is more resistant to local factors; however, jobs are often limited within a given market, and the prospective employee must often move to where the jobs are.
