Program Update from Professional MSA to Online MSA
In line with our mission to be the best program in online sport business graduate education, we have made important changes to our Professional (hybrid) Master of Sports Administration program. Beginning Fall 2023, the program has been renamed the Online Master of Sports Administration program.
The overarching goals of the program continue to be to ensure that students receive a high-level sport business education while also offering the opportunity to connect with the Bobcat Sports Ad network at residencies and sport business conferences. To reach these goals, we updated our curriculum to include important content areas like Sport Marketing and Diversity, Equity & Inclusion and have reduced the number of required residencies.
We continue to provide online graduate sport business education for sport business professionals who want to further their education without pausing their careers.
Online MSA Curriculum
36 Credits | Part-time format | 2 Starts/year (Fall & Spring)
The 36-credit OMSA program combines the flexibility of online learning with crucial, in-person networking and residency opportunities. The curriculum is centered around a sports administration core plus five special topic courses that cover a variety of important trending topics, like Sport Business, Esports, and Sports Betting/Gambling. Students will take a 1 credit hour Capstone course in their final semester.
The OMSA program will host two residencies in Athens and will offer experience options like the National Sports Forum conference and Ohio University Sports Administration Symposium to ensure students have several opportunities to connect with alumni, faculty and other Sports Ad students during their time in the program.
