Business and Sport Management
About the Business and Sport Management Department
The sport management major prepares students to serve Christ as marketplace missionaries in the field of sport management, in both the private and public sectors. The degree is designed to assist students in acquiring organizational and managerial expertise in the health, fitness and sport management fields, as well as to assist students in gaining an understanding of personnel management and supervisory dynamics.
The primary mission of the sport and business management degree program held at our Minnesota campus is to prepare students to fulfill their God-given calling as a marketplace missionary (Eph 4:12). While striving to accomplish this mission, the department develops the student’s ability to creatively solve real-world problems by utilizing higher-level critical thinking skills. In doing this, we hope to encourage students to become self-directed, life-long learners and teachers. Upon graduation from one of our business management degree programs, students will be prepared for careers in business, licensing, sports marketing and management. Students attending Crown have an excellent opportunity to pursue careers in any of these fields because of the College’s close proximity to the Twin Cities — a benefit of pursuing your business and sports management degree in Minnesota. This metropolitan area is home to multiple college and professional sports teams including the NFL, the NBA, the NHL, and the MLB. There are also many Fortune 500 companies in the area including Target, 3M, Best Buy, General Mills and U.S. Bancorp. Our location not only provides students with an excellent place to start a career, but it also provides students with countless opportunities for jobs, internships and on-site training.
Why choose Business and Sport Management Programs at Crown?
The real difference in our program is the 24-credit focus in Bible and theology; graduates not only know what they believe, they understand how to communicate that belief to a lost and dying world. The reason a student would choose to become a business major at Crown College is simple: They know that God has called them to a non-traditional ministry that will change the world. And one person can certainly change the world for God (Acts 19:9 -10).
