SPORT MANAGEMENT

Loras College Sport management majors will be exposed to a rigorous and current curriculum in an environment that fosters the College’s Catholic identity and a respect for human dignity. Students accepted into the program via an arduous application process are led through interaction with faculty and sport business professionals and engaged in practical experiential learning opportunities including a pre-professional field experience.
