This global sports management degree is designed for busy professionals from around the world. It offers the convenience of online study with the ability to network in person. It is an online sports management degree that requires only four 1-week residencies in New York City and at NYU global locations. Students in the program acquire comprehensive knowledge and critical skills in key facets of sports business, with a focus on leadership in an international context. Courses familiarize students with sports digital media and marketing; sports analytics; event planning and promotion for global sports events; international sports law; and sports finance, economics, and revenue strategies.

The program purpose is to create a graduate degree that is designed to equip students with the requisite skills to compete in the global sports industry. Such skills include, but are not limited to, a strong understanding of the unique differences between cultures and the business implications of these differences, the role that sports play in a global society, a demonstration of ethical leadership abilities, and the ability to apply critical thinking and analytic skills to complex global sports business issues. Over the last decade, the globalization of the sports industry has created a market opportunity to provide students with a more tailored view of the global sports ecosystem.
