What Sets Us Apart


Doctoral Capstone Project instead of traditional dissertation


Networking opportunities with other sport leaders


Designed to cater to working professional


Study abroad field experiences


The Global Sport Leadership program is designed to provide the working sport practitioner with a global view of leadership in a variety of sport areas. This program is an online educational doctorate program that will progress with a new cohort each fall. The culminating experience is a Doctoral Capstone Project, which will provide the student the opportunity to bring all the information gained throughout the program into one seamless document.  


Students in the Global Sport Leadership program take what they have learned in the classroom to the real world through a study abroad field experience. This amazing opportunity provides students the opportunity to travel abroad and interact with leaders in the field of sport in multiple cities and countries. The specific itinerary for each year is custom designed to provide students with a once in a lifetime opportunity to immerse in the culture of another country.

Many sport administrators are positioned to climb the ladder in only one area. The Global Sport Leadership program provides in-depth exploration of both the internal and external operations of a sport organization to provide students with a broad based understanding of the sport industry.
