Overview

They also do a “capstone project,” which can involve holding an internship in the sports world, completing a sports-related travel experience and writing about it, or presenting a research paper at a sports-focused conference.

Other sports-related courses are offered, too, and while they don't count toward the sports business concentration, they are a great addition to students' academic portfolio. Current examples include:

  • Business and Ethics of Sports
  • Sports Analytics

If you're interested in the area where business and sports meet, you'll find tons of like-minded classmates at Fordham. There's a club called the Business of Sports Society that brings in speakers from the New York Yankees to sports media giant IMG.

Sports-related internships are everywhere in New York City, which is home to 11 professional teams, all major networks, media powerhouses, and agencies that represent athletes across sports.
