Hi Deepak,
Traditionally speaking, MBA is more "learn by doing" approach and M.Sc. is more theoretical. Generally speaking MBA helps a person secure a job. However, relying on general information may not be accurate to your profile. Moreover, there is a shift towards hiring candidates with a specific skill set (provided by M.Sc.) over jack of all candidates (MBAs).
I would recommend you search for a job that you would like to pursue after graduating from MBA/M.Sc. course and count back. Identify the skill gap and understand what is really needed to perform at such a job. Talk to people who have already studied what you plan to study and/or people doing the job you dream to do. Committing yourself to such a specific degree may prove catastrophic should things not work out in future.
Good Luck!.

PS: I found these links with loads of info.

Hi Peer review,
Generally speaking, networking within the sport you want to work in and getting to know people can be more beneficial than just getting an MBA. Sports management and marketing are not really mainstream MBA paths- people do take them- but it still requires a lot of self direction either way. I suggest you do a lot of informational interviews with people doing things you'd like to do and ask them what kind of training they have, what was most important to get their job etc. Right now that 550 is not going to open many doors- but it may be that the doors you want opened don't have a GMAT lock on them nor an MBA lock either... so keep researching and I believe in you... if you want to do this... you can! Just do your homework so you don't waste time going through doors that don't lead to your desired goal...
