The Sport Management program at Lancaster Bible College | Capital Seminary & Graduate School has been named to the 25 Best Sports Management Degrees in America by GreatBusinessSchools.org.
According to Great Business Schools, “With athletics standing as one of the biggest businesses in America, a career in sports management looks like a perennial favorite. If a person considers a sports management degree, he or she may wonder if it’s worth it … With a sports administration degree, particularly a bachelor’s, a person has the option of becoming an athletic coach, athlete development specialist or an athletic director. It could be the start of a person opening his or her own gym or fitness center. A person may also choose to earn a teaching certificate and teach athletics in a private or public school.”
Great Business Schools reported that Lancaster Bible College offers a Bachelor of Science in Sport Management and Biblical Studies “that is considered among the best sports management degrees from a Christian-centered institution of higher education. Lancaster Bible College’s undergraduate sports management program has received accreditation from the Commission on Sport Management Accreditation. Previous internship experiences for degree candidates included working at Cal Ripken’s Baseball Clinic or Spooky Nook”—the largest indoor recreational complex in North America.
LBC | Capital Sport Management students also interned with the Reading Fightin’ Phils Minor League Baseball team during the summer of 2021 and have interned in the past with the Lancaster Barnstormers of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball, a partner league of Major League Baseball.
Earlier in the spring of 2021, Intelligent.com, a trusted resource for online degree rankings and higher education planning, announced the Top 50 Sports Management Degree Programs for 2021, for which LBC | Capital was ranked at No. 6.
According to Intelligent.com, “Students who pursue any one of these programs can expect to gain employment much quicker in comparison to candidates without a degree. In addition to accessibility and cost, the steady job growth in this market is one of the many reasons Intelligent.com researched and ranked the Top Sports Management Degree Programs.”
Yet another coup for the college’s program, four LBC | Capital Sport Management majors were recently inducted into the Chi Sigma Mu Honor Society of COSMA.
Judith Breeze (’21), Kendra Brown (’21), Hunter Gerber (’21) and Mitchell Smith (’21) were honored during a virtual ceremony hosted by Oral Roberts University and the University of Houston in February. Students who maintain grade point averages of 3.5 or higher are honored and receive COSMA cords to wear at graduation this spring, set for the Lancaster campus on May 7, 2021.
