Summary of the Changes:

The Coggin College of Business at the request of and in cooperation with the College of Education's Department of Leadership, Counseling, and Instructional Technology (DLCIT) seek to add a Sport Management Concentration to its MBA degree program. DLCIT has developed and added the required courses and these courses have been approved through the APC process. This concentration is seen as advantageous to the students of both the Coggin College and the College of Education. It provides Coggin students another concentration option and DLCIT students a degree program to further their specialty.

Following is a new MBA concentration:

Students must make a "B" or better in all concentration classes. 
SPM6008 Foundations of Sport Management (3 hours) to be taken if one does not have an undergraduate degree or minor in sport management
