An MBA is the most recognized graduate degree in business, and the sport and entertainment industry is looking for people who understand foundational business principles as well as the multiple ways sport and entertainment is a unique business. Our MBA in Sport and Entertainment Management provides you with both.
An MBA in sport and entertainment management is also the most versatile degree. Long gone are the days of being able to predict a career path. Our program prepares you for key roles in sport and entertainment organizations, but no matter where you go or what you do, the business acumen and leadership skills you learn will give you a competitive edge.
Building your professional network is seamless in our sport and entertainment management program. Because we have formal partnerships with Seattle sport and entertainment organizations, you are not only introduced to but also do real work with many sport industry professionals who are committed to your success.
The highlight of the program is our exclusive Fellowship Program. During your second year, you will be immersed in the day-to-day of a sport organization, where supervisors are committed to helping you learn and grow -- not just do work for them. They expect that you will apply the classroom learning to your work, and that you will bring your work experiences back into the classroom.
Our partnerships also mean that you will develop even deeper connections as many courses integrate sport industry professionals into projects and activities in addition to being guest speakers. You will participate in the Mentor Program your first year during which you will meet five to six times to learn how to navigate your career and gain insights that help you determine your next steps after graduation.
The sport industry has a renewed call to action as it endeavors to increase diversity at all levels in all segments. Our Seattle sport industry partners know this and are leading the way for diversity and inclusion efforts in sport and entertainment. Our program is contributing to those efforts.
The reimagined MBA in Sport and Entertainment Management degree builds on our 10-year history of diversity and inclusion education. We are committed to being diverse, to holding equity as an achievable goal, and to preparing graduates so that they can create an inclusive climate where everyone is valued for who they are and what they bring to the workplace. We are committed to being the change we want to see.
