Vinik Sport & Entertainment Management Program
Made possible by a partnership with the Tampa Bay Lightning and The Lightning Foundation, the USF MBA in Sport and Entertainment Management emphasizes business fundamentals of sports: management, marketing, finance, economics, and accounting. With specialized classes and coursework that are tailored to the business of sports, this full-time cohort program includes an internship. This internship provides graduate students on-the-job opportunities to help them experience how those lessons taught in the classroom play out in the industry.
This is a two year, 60 credit hour dual-degree program where students earn both an MBA with a concentration in Sport Business and MS in Sport & Entertainment Management. During the first year, students complete the MBA courses. The second year of the program consists of on-the-job work in the sport and entertainment industry. Students who do not have an undergraduate degree in business must take business foundation courses as pre-requisites.
