With the proliferation of sport enterprises and their economic impact worldwide, the opportunities for jobs in sport management abound. The Sport Management degree program is designed to prepare professionals who can assume responsible entry-level positions in the sports industry. The mission of the program is to examine the disciplinary foundations of sport management and organization and provide opportunities for acquisition and application of skills used for jobs in sports management. Additionally, the Sport Management Program builds on the mission and goals of Lasell College. These emphasize the integration of coursework with practical experience and service learning to foster "lifelong intellectual exploration, active citizenship and social responsibility." The program culminates in a capstone course that synthesizes knowledge, practice, and skills necessary to succeed in the sports industry. Graduates receive a Bachelor of Science Sport Management Degree from the Sport Management Department.

The Sport Management Department also offers a Master of Science in Sport Management. Students can get a masters degree in sport management with several areas of concentration, including Sport Leadership, Sport Hospitality Management and Sport Non-Profit Management.

Excellence in sport management education requires institutions and their academic unit/sport management programs to be accountable to the public concerning student learning outcomes. Therefore, in our efforts to be accountable, transparent, and to provide reliable public disclosure of key student learning outcomes, the Sport Management Department is providing this assessment data for your review.
