Kick-start your career in the international sporting arena!
This program is designed for students interested in working in international sportS, either outside of the United States or with international sports organizations within the United States, and who are interested in taking classes on campus in a traditional classroom setting. You're already excited about everything to do with sports. Now you're ready to step up your game on a global scale — so it just makes sense to pursue an M.S. in International Sports Management at SUNY Cortland. In this 30-credit-hour program, you will balance theory and practice as you gain a solid understanding of the international sports management environment. You will complete 12-24 class credit hours on the SUNY Cortland campus and have opportunities to fulfill the remaining class credit hours in an international study abroad location such as Germany or Australia. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to pursue international internship opportunities.
