I am VERY HAPPY and EXTREMELY PROUD of my experience and degree from SMWW/CUC! Sports management is a rapidly emerging field! The training and education I participated in with SMWW have enabled me to exceed my professional goals. From the scope and depth of the curriculum to the flexibility of the online learning environment, to the expertise shared by the faculty members, SMWW transformed me and encouraged me in a culture of creativity and motivation. Rigorous educational standards, mutually respectful rapport between student and instructor, stimulating dialogue of inquiry and discovery, collaborative, asynchronous approach - SMWW offers an excellent online program! Due to the number of professionals in the athletic realm who are looking for ongoing professional development and training, I believe the partnership between SMWW and Concordia University Chicago will continue to be one of the best in the industry!

Why an Online Sports Management Degree Makes Sense
A bachelor’s degree used to be a strong differentiator for those seeking employment, now it is the norm. Yet, only 8% of US citizens over the age of 25 have a master’s degree, while only 1.68% have their doctorate.
For those wanting to stand out in the marketplace, a master’s or doctorate separates you from the pack.
If you envision an online program like ours being impersonal, where you are stuck in front of your computer reading the screen for hours on end, you’d be wrong.

A Message from Your Course Mentor, Dr. Lynn Lashbrook
Dear Potential Student,
Every day I discuss with people the career opportunities in college athletics and Sports Management. For the past 45 years I have worked at a variety of sports careers including as a Sports Agent, Athletic Director, Academic Advisor, College Coach, Professor, Scout, and Compliance Officer. I know which careers will benefit from a specific degree and which do not. If you are like most people, you are not aware of the opportunities and how one can break this profession, or even if a degree is a good investment for you. When I started Sports Management Worldwide, I searched for a partnership in Higher Education who understands the importance of an online Masters and Doctorate Program for students who want obtain a career in college and professional athletics. The Concordia University Chicago Sports Management program exceeds my expectations.
