The primary mission of the Master in Business Administration with a concentration in sport business is to meet the needs of the active sport business professional. The curriculum is designed to provide core MBA courses supplemented with specialized courses that apply certain business concepts to the sport industry. The Saint Leo University MBA sport business concentration is accredited by the Commission on Sport Management Accreditation (COSMA). This new accreditation was first available in 2010. The program is one of only two master's-level programs in the nation to earn accreditation in the first year available, and is currently the only accredited MBA program.
Note on internship elective: It is strongly recommended that students currently not working in the sport industry, or students looking to make a career change within the sport industry, take SPB 597 as an elective over and above the required courses for the MBA sport business concentration.
