Master of Arts in Sport Management


Thank you for your interest in the Wingate University Master of Arts in Sport Management (MASM) program.  The MASM program was established by the Wingate University School of Sport Sciences in 2006.  This quality program is designed for students who have earned an undergraduate degree in any field and aspire to work in the sport industry's public or private sector.
Recently, we've seen tremendous growth in the opportunities for well-trained, experienced professionals in sport management. While the number of sport-related jobs have grown, the number of applicants for these positions have increased at a much greater pace. Because of the increased competition for these positions, a well-rounded education in sport management is essential. Wingate University's MASM program prepares you for a career in a variety of sport-related occupations through our intensive academic regimen along with numerous opportunities to gain practical, hands-on experience.  Courses include study in sport marketing & promotion, sport law, sport finance, sport facility & venue management, and sport organization & administration--to name a few.
Please note that the Master of Arts in Sport Management degree does not lead to any form of licensure as a teacher.


Wingate University's Master of Arts in Sport Management program recently received accreditation through the Commission on Sport Management Accreditation (COSMA), the specialized accrediting body that promotes and recognizes excellence in sport management education in colleges and universities.

The accreditation will serve to keep the program on the leading edge of trends in higher education and sport management, assure that the characteristics of excellence are evident in the curriculum and co-curricular experiences, and ensure that students will gain the knowledge and skills necessary to function effectively in the field of sport management.
