Abstract

As the discipline of sport management continues to encompass an increasing array of concentrations, discussions about required core curricular components in concentrations such as sport finance have become more important. However, there appears to be little consensus on how a sport finance course should be delivered. This study’s purpose was to examine syllabi from sport management programs across the United States to determine how sport finance content is being delivered. Analysis of 47 syllabi indicated that instructors favored the use of article reviews, case studies, and corporate profile analyses as assignments, and most preferred using one of two textbooks.
