Specialized Sports Management courses provide an environment for active student discussion. The professor and guest speakers are not lecturers; they are guides and co-explorers that support students in understanding concepts and theories as they can be applied considering the depth and breadth of the sports industry. Courses require students and student teams to engage in teaching material and presenting research, projects and ideas. Student teams lead discussions, present their work and provide critical feedback of others. The culminating projects in these courses provide students with real experience in developing research-based projects with practical applications. Sports Management courses promote deep learning through risk-taking and experimentation. Students develop best practices for integrating the knowledge, skills and abilities learned with concepts and theories to produce valuable examples for their portfolios. Ultimately, the Sports Management course experience will create and foster a Business Culture for Sports Management students in the Business Division. The Business Culture will support students in their career-launching education by creating accountability and developing the following competencies: oral and written communication skills, reading, writing, information literacy, critical thinking and creative thinking, ethical decision-making and global citizenship.
