Lynn Lashbrook

Dear Potential Student-
Everyday 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, 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, and 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 a 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.
