Sports Management A.S.
The Program (HEGIS Code 5099)
The Sports Management A.S. is a generalist business/liberal arts program with specific core courses in sports management disciplines. Coursework includes economics and accounting as well as a solid grounding in various areas of general education/liberal arts. The Sports Management A.S. program is a transfer degree, designed to be the first two years of a 4+ year business education. This program is intended for students who plan to transfer to another college or university, perhaps continuing through a graduate degree or higher. The curriculum is designed to let graduates be successful in any sports management or business-related transfer program, regardless of the transfer school chosen.
Students who plan to transfer to a SUNY college may use the Liberal Arts Electives to fulfill any of the following five SUNY General Education Requirements: A (Arts), AH (American History), FL (Foreign Language), OWC (Other World Civilizations), WC (Western Civilization).
Students graduating from the Sports Management program with an A.S. degree will:
- Demonstrate an understanding of, and be able to effectively utilize, the technology essential for business applications.
- Demonstrate the ability to locate, evaluate, analyze, and apply information to make effective business decisions.
- Demonstrate understanding of the four functions of management as they relate to Sports Management specifically.
- Successfully meet the SLO’s for 7 of the 10 SUNY General Education Requirements.
Graduates from this program who continue with their sports management/business education may enter the exciting world of professional sports as team managers, personal agents, and executives in the spectrum of businesses that support professional and amateur sport including fitness centers, recreation centers and ice arenas, and sporting goods sales and marketing.
As a graduate of Jefferson, you will have many transfer opportunities to consider and will be able to choose from a wide variety of colleges and universities to pursue your baccalaureate degree. The sports management curriculum was designed for seamless transfer to the sports management baccalaureate programs at SUNY Canton and SUNY Cortland, and will facilitate transfer to the sports management baccalaureate programs at SUNY Brockport and Cazenovia College, among other programs. Currently, a formal transfer agreement exists with SUNY Canton, Sports Management, B.B.A. program.
