The University of New Mexico will begin offering sports management as a new track for the MBA for Professionals program beginning in the spring semester.
The new track is a partnership between UNM’s Anderson School of Management and the Department of Sports Administration. Classes will begin in January, and the application deadline for the program is October 1, according to the university.
Some of the options for the new track include courses on sports leadership, sports marketing and promotion, risk management in sports, legal aspect of sports, among others, according to UNM.
“Sport is an important part of our economy, both in our region and beyond,” said Mitzi Montoya, Dean of the UNM Anderson School. “This partnership with the UNM Department of Sports Administration allows us to develop leaders in sports management to support healthy growth within this industry.”
The program, which is geared towards working professionals, is part-time and takes place primarily in the evening, UNM said. Students admitted to the Sports Management stream must complete the Professional MBA Core Course and 12 hours of Sports Administration Department credit.
Admission to the Professional MBA program requires prospective students to have at least one to two years of full-time work experience after the bachelor’s degree.
