Its interdisciplinary faculty and courses — including a two-week trip to Europe to study sports abroad — give students the opportunity to concentrate on areas most important to them and most relevant to the sports business.

We offer a 12- to 16-month on-campus program, as well as a distance learning option for working students or those outside the Richmond, Va., area.
