The Bachelor of Science in Sport Management supports both the extraordinary growth in the business of sport and the increase in consumer demand for entertainment in the sports industry. Personal consumption expenditures on spectator sports have enjoyed impressive growth at over 6% per year since 2012. A commensurate increase in college and university sports programs provides additional opportunities for students seeking to apply their expertise in this arena. Our program provides essential skills and knowledge in sport management, sport ethics, marketing, communications, facility operations, risk management, and strategic leadership in the sports industry. A strong internship program since the inception of the major has consistently yielded rewarding full-time employment in multiple settings.
With 14 major league professional sports franchises located in the NY/NJ metro area, Caldwell is well-positioned to offer students a total package of sport business-related academic and career opportunities.

“I will forever be grateful for everything Caldwell has given me over the last four years. A lot of what I learned, inside and outside of the classroom, came from the brilliant faculty at Caldwell. I would not be the person I am today without all the amazing things they have done for me! Time and again staff went out of their way to make sure I was in good standing, or added insight to help me overcome any obstacle I faced. I am thrilled and blessed to start my journey this Fall at Boston College in pursuit of my M.S in Sports Administration, as well as working game days for the New England Patriots. Caldwell University, you have surpassed all expectations, and I will continue to build on the foundations you laid out for me in all my future endeavors. I will never forget you!”
