Sports management is a rapidly growing field that provides numerous career options from professional and collegiate sports to sport broadcasting or selling sporting goods. Hospitality, tourism, and event management are also strong fields that have significant growth through large national hotel chains to amusement parks and resorts. The two fields have many common issues/opportunities. UNH focuses on the business side of these industries. Our graduates work in numerous business environments leveraging their strong legal, financial, managerial, marketing, and event management skills embodied in our classes. Our courses are supplemented with numerous experiential education opportunities from industry internships to professional enrichment opportunities where students can network with industry leaders.
With several unique degree options, UNH’s Sport Management/Hospitality and Tourism Management Department can provide the education students need to become leaders in these exciting industries.
The department encourages internships, which enable students to combine their education with practical, paid work experience in their career field. For additional details, students should consult their academic advisor and the Office of Internships and Employer Relations at 203.932.7491.
