Graduates of the Sport Management course at Otterbein University have gone on to work for professional sports teams as well as many other sports/recreation/fitness-related organizations. And it’s no wonder…we have a unique curriculum, boundless experiential opportunities, individualized attention, and faculty who are passionate about seeing you succeed.


The sport industry is one of the largest in the United States with an annual valuation of $400+ billion; globally, this figure nearly doubles. The explosive growth of sport is reflected in the expansion of professional, semi-professional, amateur, and youth sport leagues; sport marketing, advertising and promotional firms; community recreation centers and country clubs; increased sports opportunities for all populations; and around the clock use of facilities for school, community, and corporate sport and entertainment activities.

During the Sport Management course at Otterbein University, you’ll gain real-world experience in sport through numerous practicums and internship opportunities throughout all four years. You’ll integrate your formal academic preparation with a semester-long work experience at home or abroad. 

You’ll learn to communicate, problem solve, collaborate, and lead! With so much hands-on experience before you graduate, you’ll be strongly positioned to land a sports industry job in areas such as: marketing, public relations, sales, arena management, retail, law, media, broadcasting, event management, finance, athletic management, and many more. And, we’ve got the graduates to prove it! 


Our students have gone on to work for the Columbus Blue Jackets, Cleveland Cavaliers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Columbus Crew, Detroit Tigers, Philadelphia Eagles, New York Mets; the NCAA and OHSAA (Ohio High School Athletic Association); Turner Sports, IMG, and the PGA; Oakley, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and Under Armor; Lucas Oil-NASCAR and Summit Motor Speedway Park; The Ohio State University Athletic Department and Jerome Schottenstein Center Arena; and many other recreation centers, country clubs, sportsplexes, stadiums and arenas, colleges/universities, and high schools.
