CEM 400 Leadership Principles in Sports

This course teaches concepts, principles, and skills of leadership for managers in the sports industry who must influence others to get things done. Styles of successful sport coaches and managers will be examined and analyzed in the context of their times and settings.

CEM 422 Structure and Function of Sports

An analysis of professional and amateur sport organizations from a philosophical, historical and operational perspective.

And lastly, when the two additional courses have been completed, the student will be referred to the Mentorship Department to complete a 200 contact hour mentorship.
