Mentorship & Community
As a sport management major, you’ll have access to special events with sports industry professionals, including our semi-annual Sport Industry Professional Day, student-alumni meet-and-greets, volunteer opportunities at major events like the Super Bowl and MLB Spring Training, and regional meetings like the Pennsylvania Sports Business Conference.
In addition to attending conferences and special events, York College sport management majors have the opportunity to participate in the Sport Business Association (SBA), a student organization that offers guest speakers, social events, and trips to visit sport industry organizations. Past events have featured facility tours with University of Maryland Basketball, game-day assistance for the Baltimore Ravens, and the Ivy Sport Symposium in New York City.
Faculty in Sport Management work closely with students and advisees, allowing for student opportunities that are not often available to undergraduates at other institutions — including undergraduate research. Our students’ research has been presented at industry conferences and published in respected academic journals.
The Sport Management program also includes the opportunity to take a course in International Sport and Entertainment, involving a short-term study abroad trip where students are introduced to professionals and facilities from another culture. Past classes have traveled to London and Paris.
