Fifty years ago when the idea for an academic program built around sports administration came to fruition, one could hardly predict the level of complexity that the sports industry has become today. Through the years, the sports industry has continued to evolve, becoming increasingly global and more complex in its approach to business. As such, Ohio University’s AECOM Center for Sports Administration was founded to serve as a resource to solve the increasingly difficult issues facing the sports industry. The AECOM Center for Sports Administration serves as a platform, bringing together various constituent groups associated with the Ohio University Sports Administration Program. Each of these groups benefit from the Center’s unique arrangement: Alumni of the Program can come to the Center for solutions to issues that present particular challenges to their organizations. The Center will then use its resources at its disposal to find workable solutions to these challenges. Current Students enrolled in the SAFM program will be given the opportunity to research solutions to industry challenges while applying the skill that he/she has acquired throughout their two-year course of studies in the MBA/MSA program. Through their research efforts, students will increase their knowledge base, while building their own personal networks. The Sport Industry will benefit from the results that are yielded from student research. The Center posts the findings from students on its website, which will become and has become an online destination for industry professionals looking for answers to perplexing issues affecting their organizations. In order to continue to serve on the forefront of the sport industry Ohio University offers four degree options: Master of Business Administration/Master of Sports Administration (MBA/MSA) Dual-Degree Program Master of Sports Administration (MSA) Degree Program** Professional Master of Sports Administration*** (online only) Master of Athletic Administration (MAA) Program The Department of Sports Administration offers this degree option: Bachelor of Science (BS) in Sports Administration **Available for students with previous graduate degrees in law or business and also available to prospective students with full-time experience in sports or a related industry who will add value to younger students enrolled in the MBA/MSA dual degree program ***Only available to students with three or more years of full time experience working in the sports business industry, this is an ONLINE program

Thank you to all of you part of the Sports Administration Program. All of the focus you put on Lilly and those touched by Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is life changing. In 1955 most children with cystic fibrosis didn’t reach their 6th birthday. Because of the support you’re giving there are improvements for patients each year. Lilly has two rare CF mutations, so many of the treatments out there don’t help her yet. You all have been like an extended family for us before and after losing my husband Daryn. Your connection makes us feel so comforted. Best wishes to you all.
Dear Sports Administration students and staff: Lilly and I cannot thank you enough for the impact you’re having on our lives. Lilly feels the support you all are giving her and it helps both of us put one foot in front of the other each day. All of the kindness and help you have shown us makes us feel so cared for as we navigate life. Lilly’s zest for living doesn’t reveal that she is fighting the chronic illness Cystic Fibrosis or that she lost her father from an auto-accident at the age of seven. I contribute her ability to handle more than most people, because of the love we’re shown from our near and wide community. Thank you for truly going out of your way in such generous ways to make such a positive difference in our lives. You give us such a feeling of comfort by helping us create a future. Sincerely, Kathy and Lilly
