The sport management studies curriculum was created especially for presentation via the Internet. Sport management theory and principles are presented with streaming video, narrated PowerPoint presentations and online forums. Threaded discussion groups, chat rooms and email allow the cohorts to communicate and interact, adding unique insight into the discussion. Students have the option of completing the generalist concentration, the intercollegiate athletic administration concentration, or the strategic sport analysis concentration. Program length is approximately 13 consecutive months, with new cohorts beginning in January and July. Cohorts of approximately 35 students each learn and communicate online and regularly function as a group of interactive peers. This virtual community creates a lively and dynamic educational experience that enriches the collaborative skills essential for success in the sport industry.

The intercollegiate athletic administration track has been developed in consultation with the NCAA.
