The MBA in Sport & Recreation Management is one-of-a-kind in Canada. The program allows students to combine their passion for sport and recreation with marketing, finance, public relations, human resources and strategic planning skills.

Students take a combination of courses in general management and current and emerging issues related to sport and recreation.

This program prepares students for a career with a variety of public, private and not-for-profit organizations such as professional and amateur sports leagues and associations, recreation facilities, resorts and parks, and in the field of sport tourism.

96% of students find a job

As awareness of the importance of recreation and sport in creating healthy communities has increased, the demand for trained sport and recreation managers and professionals has also grown. 96% of our students are employed in their field after graduation.

Courses from kinesiology and business

During the first year of the program students take a combination of business and kinesiology courses. In the second year, students can choose between writing a thesis, taking more courses, or participating in a sport and recreation executive internship.

Students have spent their internships working with such teams as the L.A. Kings and the Ottawa Senators, as well as with various hockey leagues, and sport and recreation organizations across Canada and the US.
