Sports Administration

Combine your business degree with the premier sport management program in Canada.

SPAD is the only undergraduate business degree in sport management in all of Canada.

While it is the best preparation for working in the sports industry, the SPAD degree is also valued by many non-sports organizations. Because SPAD graduates are great team players with tremendous work ethic, as well as being outgoing, engaged, and creative thinkers, banks, marketing firms, apparel companies, insurance companies, and many other companies in a variety of industries prefer to hire our grads. The knowledge and skills developed in SPAD are desirable across all industries and valued by all organizations.

Internships

SPAD believes strongly in the importance of experiential education (learning through doing, rather than just attending lectures). Highlights of the experiential learning approach are the internship opportunities offered throughout the four years. It is possible to have work placement terms during the summer after first year, the summer after second year, the summer after third year and even during the fall of fourth year.

Through 40 years of alumni and industry contacts SPAD is incredibly well connected, with many organizations offering exclusive opportunities to SPAD students. Opportunities exist with every major professional sports league and teams throughout North America, as well as with sports apparel companies, national and international sports organizations, major games, marketing firms, player representatives, various agencies, and many other organizations within or outside of the sports industry.

Students are not limited to accepting internships locally. In fact, some of the best internship experiences have been when students have travelled to the United States, Scotland, England, and many other international destinations.

4th Year Industry Consulting Experience

In the final semester of the SPAD program students are provided with a capstone experience that allows them to better understand the inner workings of large sports organizations and builds important and highly-relevant skills and knowledge. This provides the student with valuable experience, setting them up for a career in the sports industry.

Beginning in January, small groups of students are given an organization to work with in one specific geographic location. The organization will describe a significant problem with which they are faced and the students are tasked with the responsibility of working with members of the organization, researching industry best practices and trends, analysing the market, and developing recommendations for the organisation.

In March, all fourth year students travel to the host community and deliver their recommendations to the organization’s executives in their board rooms. Often the recommendations provided by the student-consultants are immediately adopted and job opportunities occasionally are offered to top performing students.

Past trips have included Miami, New York, Los Angeles, Vancouver, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, and many other world-class sport cities. Partner organisations have included NCAA Division I institutions, NBA, NHL, MLB, NFL, MLS, MLL, and many minor league teams.

Program Regulations

In order to be considered in good academic standing in SPAD, a student must:
1) satisfy all conditions of admission;
2) not fail more than 3 credits in an academic year or in the previous 30 credits; and
3) maintain a cumulative grade point average of at least 4.0


A student who fails to meet the requirements for good academic standing will be allowed to continue in the program for no more than one year on academic probation. During the probationary year, if the student is able to achieve passing grades in all of their courses (a minimum of 24 credits is required) and return their cumulative grade point average to at least 4.0, then the student will be returned to good academic standing. A failure to achieve good academic standing following a probationary year will result in removal from the program.


Pass/Fail:
A passing grade in the Faculty of Management is considered to be at least a C or 4.0 grade. Any grade less than C or 4.0 in a course offered within the Faculty of Management is considered to be a failing grade.


Number of 1000-level Credits:
Students may only count a total of 42 credits at the 1000 level towards the 120 credits required for the degree. Any credits that exceed the limit of 42 must be replaced by at least an equal number of credits taken at the 2000, 3000, or 4000 levels.


Removal from the Program:
Students will automatically be removed from the program for any of the following reasons:
- failure twice to achieve a minimum of at least a C grade in a required course;
- failure to achieve good academic standing in 2 consecutive years
- more than 18 credits of failure overall; or,
- a notation of X on a student’s transcript, as per the Laurentian University Policy on Academic Honesty.


Readmission to the Program:
Students forced to leave the program, or those who choose to leave the program, must reapply through the internal program transfer process overseen by the Laurentian University Admissions Office prior to February 1 of the academic year preceding their intended return to the program. Readmission to the program will be subject to students being able to enter in good academic standing. Students could be eligible to receive advanced standing for courses completed while not in the program. Such cases will be considered on an individual basis.

Please note that first year students are only required to take one 1000 level MATH Elective.
