Admission into the MPS program in Sport Management is contingent
upon an assessment of the candidate’s ability to successfully
pursue graduate study. This assessment will be made by examining
previous academic performance, letters of recommendation, the
applicant’s essay, work experience, performance on standardized
exams (such as the GRE or GMAT), and any other evidence that the
admissions committee believes to be relevant.
Applicants must submit the following for admission
- Evidence of the conferral of a baccalaureate degree from a
regionally accredited college or university. Transcripts from each
institution attended must be submitted even if a degree was not
conferred. Applicants are expected to have an overall undergraduate
average of at least 3.0 (B) on a 4.0 scale.
- Two letters of recommendation from individuals who can comment
on the applicant’s academic abilities and potential to succeed in
an academically rigorous graduate program. At least one of
these letters must be from an instructor who has taught and
evaluated the applicant in an academic setting.
- An essay of approximately 300 words describing the applicant’s
reason for pursuing graduate study and his or her leadership
- May 1 for the Fall semester, November 1 for the Spring
semester. Applications received after these dates will be
considered on a space available basis until two weeks prior to the
start of the semester.
