The University of New Haven’s MS in Sports Management was ranked #16 in North America and #22 in the world by SportBusiness International magazine, a publication that has ranked programs since 2012.
Additionally, the Masters in Sports Management was recognized in the magazine’s top ten “Graduates’ Choice” and “Most Valuable in Furthering Career” lists, ranking at #8 and #9, respectively.
“We are very proud to be consistently ranked among the top sports management programs in the world,” said Gil Fried, JD, program coordinator. “And we’re especially proud to be ranked in the top ten for student satisfaction and also for career growth.”
One of those graduates, Melissa Corraro ’16 MS, moved across the country after graduation and is now an event manager for the National Basketball Association’s Portland Trail Blazers.
“The lessons were very hands-on and used lots of real-world examples, so we were able to apply what was learned to real-life situations,” she said. “My lessons and hands-on experiences helped me grow as a student and young professional throughout my time there.”
Ultimately, Fried says the advantages of the university’s program are its smaller class sizes and hands-on learning opportunities.
The top 25 list includes programs from around the world, including the United States, Russia, Belgium, and the United Kingdom. Ohio University’s Master of Sports Administration program was ranked number one.
“Our mentorship program and targeted picks/focuses are often ahead of the competition. For example, in 2018 we offered the world’s first business class focused on the business side of esports. These opportunities are critical to preparing our graduates for success.” Gil Fried, JD, Professor and Coordinator of the MS in Sports Management
