Sports Industry Management


The sports industry management (SIM) program at Hilbert is designed to provide students with a practical foundation in business disciplines coupled with the real world experience of internships. In addition to the practical application of business courses, Hilbert expects students to complete a core liberal art curriculum that ensures that Hilbert graduates of the sports industry management program are confident writers, strong public speakers and have the ability to organize, plan and lead in a host of sport related industries.

Not everyone will end up working in major league sports, but there are countless opportunities in retail, the fitness industry, college programs, marketing and the recreation and tourism industries. Within this program students will study marketing and business principles in the context of sports with specific courses such as sports economics, the legal environment in the sports industry, sports events management and marketing strategies for the sports industry.
