Olympics Sport Management Defined This relatively new field has great potential, but its destiny is still in question. It is imperative that those responsible for the curricular development of sport management programs accept responsibility for ensuring quality professional preparation. At the institutional level, proliferation in the interest of increasing student enrollment must give way to a commitment to excellence.

Quality control is currently a major concern of academicians and practitioners in this field. In the endeavor an “accrediting” agency comparable to those in the business administration and communications is now being operationalized in sport management. Chapter Summary Although sport management is relatively new to academia, its acceptance as a legitimate area of study is well documented in the literature.

Although the terms sport management and sport administration are often used interchangeably, the first most accurately describes this field from a universal, or global perspective.

In 1993, the NASPE-NASSM Sport Management Cirriculum Standards were initially published and again in 2000 with minor changes. Sport management programs should use the standards to develop curricula. Chapter Summary Quality of faculties will influence the potential of sport management
