Undergrad here: Sports Management vs. Econ degree [#permalink] New post 17 Nov 2012, 16:33

Hi everyone!

Here is my deal: I have been a student at an average 4-yr university in Michigan (Wayne State) for two years now. I was just accepted as a transfer student at the University of Michigan. However the issue is deciding what to major in with my plans being set on a top-MBA in the future. I cannot get a BBA since the application to Ross is an entirely different process.

My choices are slimmed down to Economics and Sports Management. I absolutely love sports and business/management and I feel like it's the right major for me, but I am afraid MBA admissions will down on it. Economics is not really my passion and it has a reputation of difficulty at UofM that is the biggest thing keeping me away; however, Economics would probably get me a better job and might be looked upon more favorably when I apply for my MBA.

Take Econ. I am biased studied econ during my undergrad, but I've heard sports management are looked down upon. Listen to Mark Cuban on Bill Simmons podcast talking down Sports Management. Econ gives you a good base for anything you want to do. Learn the fundamental especially in statistics and econometrics, then you can do a thesis/independent study unit focused on sports in 4th year - studying the market for players (eg. why baseball teams overpay for RBIs etc) or develop a new statistic to measure efficieny in hockey. Econ gives you the tools to analyze the world including sports in different ways. Studying Econ will give you a broader knowledge base when you graduate. Read up on Nate Silver, Daryl Morey, Mark Cuban, Billy Bean -the future of sports is very analytical. I don't know how hard UM Econ is, but you are better taking the path that looks more challenging - sports business is very competitive, you will need to impress potential employers.

Good luck,
