Sports play a big part in the lives of many people, and a sports team can mean everything to a person, whether they have grown up watching them play or they are the ones on the team. As a result, a popular major was emerged, sports management. Michael Cardamone is an example of a person who wanted to pursue this type of career. He is a freshman majoring in sports management at Delaware Technical Community College.

 

Sports management concerns the business aspect of sports and athletics. Cardamone takes Accounting I, Introduction to Business, Macroeconomics, and Composition and Research. These classes have to do with the economic and written parts in businesses. Cardamone said, “I like all of my classes, but the business classes are more interesting than accounting and the financial ones.”

 

There is a wide variety of careers that are open to sports management majors, and many colleges offer programs for it. Sports management majors often end up in event management, sports marketing, sports economics, facility management, sports information, and sport finance. These are all fields that are in the main office system of a sports team, whether professional, recreational, or college.
