The mission of the M.S. Sports Administration degree program at the Marshall University is to educate students to become reflective, principled, knowledgeable, and creative learners who will succeed in the global sport management community in the 21st century.


Key facts

Additionally, future expansion of new professional teams and leagues as well as college athletic programs will create additional openings for sport administrative staff.
