MS in Global Sport
Over the last decade, the globalization of the sport industry has created greater market opportunities than ever before in sports business. Technology and the digital transformation have brought distant cultures into focus, making sport a universal language connecting the world. The increase in global events, such as World Cup-style formats in numerous sports; the growth in scope and popularity of the Olympics; dramatic increases in sport development in countries such as China, Brazil, and India; an increase in international sports such as soccer and rugby in the US; and the expansion of US sports leagues globally, have changed the landscape of sport forever. To compete and succeed in sport business, professionals today require a deep understanding of the unique differences between cultures and the business implications of these differences, the role that sport plays in a global society, a demonstration of ethical leadership abilities, and the capacity to apply critical thinking and analytic skills to complex global sport business issues.
The NEW MS in Global Sport is a 36-credit, low-residency master’s degree program that is completed in just 16 months, beginning in September of each year. The program, which is designed for busy professionals from around the world, is offered predominantly online, requiring only four one-week residencies—two in New York City and two at NYU global locations. Students in this innovative program acquire comprehensive knowledge and critical skills in key facets of sports business including digital media and marketing, analytics, leadership, finance and economics, and sports law.
