Do I need a Sport Management degree to work in the sports industry?
No – most sports jobs don’t require a sports management degree, but it never hurts to have one.
If you know you want to work in sports but aren’t exactly sure which specific path you plan on taking, a sports management degree is a great choice because it introduce you to many concepts and disciplines prevalent in the sports world.
But if you have a clear direction of the career you want to pursue, then you can choose a more specific major. So for example, if you know you want to work at ESPN, you’d probably want to major in television production, broadcast journalism or digital media.
With that said a minor in business or sports management is a smart plan, because you’ll begin to understand the broader business rather than just a specific role. Having some business knowledge will make you a more versatile employee and have a higher career ceiling.
