About Monroe College
Monroe College was founded in 1933 with a single goal: To educate men and women for a successful future. Monroe is recognized as a leader in providing a focused, career-oriented, quality education that integrates classroom learning with real-world experience. Monroe offers a range of certificate, associate, bachelor’s and master’s degree programs. Monroe is more than a college. It is a family, a future, a path to your career. Students, instructors, and staff work together to reach their goals and to have each other’s backs. Monroe works with you to jumpstart your career from day one. The practical skills you learn, your internships, the relationships you build with employers in your field — they’re all focused on your future. At Monroe, everyone’s got your back. You’ll be given the information and skills needed to empower you, solve problems and make decisions in the real world. You’ll be better positioned to compete in the marketplace and forge a path of your very own. Monroe’s faculty and staff are wholly committed to your success. They will be your mentors, your advocates, your champions, and your cheerleaders, from the day you apply until the day you graduate and beyond. Rest assured, you will never feel lost in the crowd at Monroe.
Students in our program will establish an understanding of the full range of business and sports management concepts, develop strong business writing and verbal communication skills appropriate to the field, gain exposure to the sports management industry through practical learning and field experiences. You’ll be prepared with foundational skills in management, finance, accounting, and marketing. You’ll learn about the legal and ethical considerations involved with sports and you’ll be prepared to pursue managerial positions in the field.
An internship might take you to a local club for youth, a school, a production company, or a major sporting venue. Regardless of where you do your internship, you’ll gain the hands-on experience you need to hit the ground running once you graduate.
