Sport Business Minor Online Application


Why earn a Sport Business Minor?

The sport business minor is designed to augment your College of Business or non-business degree with a focused examination of the sport business industry.  Students will explore the application of marketing, management, law, finance and other business principles as they apply specifically to the sport industry.

The sport business minor will provide curriculum to prepare students for a career in corporate, professional, intercollegiate or amateur sport organizations.  Among others, graduating students have accepted internships and jobs with Emerald Downs, the Seattle Mariners, the Seattle Storm, the Seattle Sounders, the University of Washington Athletic Department, the Tacoma Rainiers, and the former Yakima Bears.


You must be a current CWU student. 

The minor is set up so that there is a track for Business Majors and a track for Non-Business Majors. All courses available online.
