The sports industry has grown dramatically in the past several decades, and promises to continue to expand. Though sports are often referred to as entertainment, the world of sports is also a world of business that includes a variety of job titles and responsibilities.
Skills that are utilized in the industry range from marketing and public relations to accounting and negotiating. Because the career field can also be extremely competitive, students are encouraged to complete four semesters at NCC and then transfer to complete a bachelor's degree program. NCC has agreements in place with colleges such as DeSales University, assuring a smooth transfer into a Sports Administration or compatible program.
The curriculum combines the theory and practice that cover all aspects of professional and intercollegiate athletics. Graduates of the program will be prepared to apply their skills to facilities management, campus and community recreation programs, promotions and media relations, sports law, fundraising and sales. Students are encouraged to work with an academic advisor to be sure that all elective specialty courses fit into the transfer agreement.
