Sport has a dominant influence on society and is estimated to be a $500 billion global business. No single aspect of our culture receives as much media attention nor has the power to bring people together as sport. The professional field of sport management evolved due to the growth of sport and the need to more efficiently and effectively plan, organize, market, lead, and evaluate organizations providing sport activities, products, or services. More specifically, the sports industry encompasses amateur to professional sports and involves everything from the marketing and management of athletes, events, teams, facilities, organizations, sports products and sports media.
