sports management


My little brother has a degree in Sports Management - he is now the GM at a car dealership. A degree in Sports Management is like a degree in Economics - not gonna get you many places. Too general.

That is what I would call a "Summer Camp" degree. College isn't about fluffy dreams and following your heart. Study something that teaches you real skills, not just fluffs your interests. Then take those real skills and do something relating to your interests.

In other words, study finance, economics, law or medicine and then try to do sports management. Don't study sports management.

That's debateable. I minored in it and I feel like the things I learned in it are huge in how I understand the functioning of markets/growth/demand, etc.

But I majored in Finance.

Haha. I have a major in Economics (as well as Accounting).

While I agree with you, the information I learned while studying Economics was invaluable. However, it does not set you up well for a specific profession.

My friend sells IT systems - his only major was Economics. I think you have to couple it with another major.
