The C-SC Difference

We are committed to making sure you learn beyond what is written in books about Sport Management so we provide you opportunities to put what you study into action. Our students have traveled multiple times to the Boca Raton Bowl in Florida to assist with game administration, and while they are there, they enjoy the view of the game from the field. Our faculty also leads study abroad courses every other year to various locations around the world including Greece to visit the birthplace of the Olympics, Ireland and Northern Ireland, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. You will also have access to game day operations at athletic events on campus.

Professor Mahoney was instrumental in getting me prepared for a life in sports management – both as a teacher and academic advisor. His real world experiences, professional connections, and down to earth advice has given me great confidence going into every role. I’ll never forget the 3-week trip to Ireland and Holland!
