From professional athletics to community youth programs, the sport industry offers a variety of career opportunities.
American sports are a $470 billion industry annually, according to Plunkett Research. The global sport business industry is even larger – about $1 trillion annually.
With all this money changing hands, it’s not just pro athletes and coaches with big paychecks that benefit.
Sports organizations need professionals to help manage personnel, facilities, events, business strategy, budgets, sales, marketing, communication, sponsorships, community outreach, and more.
