Tiffin University ranks as one of top online sports management master’s degree programs nationwide




TIFFIN — Tiffin University has been ranked as one of the top online sports management master’s degree programs nationwide by Online Schools Report (OSR).

OSR, a new student resource site, based their ranking strictly on data, prioritizing the school’s ability to deliver an online education comparable to an on-campus degree.

The average public Division-I university spends upwards of $100,000 per football player, according to a study by the Knight Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics.

That’s up to 12 times what colleges spend per academic student. And that’s just one sport at the college level. The business of sports is booming.

Sports administration is the degree of choice for people looking to get into the business. But getting this degree online offers a few unique pros and cons.

Advantages include flexibility and often price. Disadvantages include limited access to hands on learning or internships. The best programs, featured here in OSR’s ranking, maximize the advantages while navigating the hurdles.

OSR used six data points to determine the best sports administration degrees. Three data points focus on the quality of the school, and three focus on the quality of the individual program.

OSR included these programs in the ranking because their students graduate with minimal debt and have a great support system while in school. These schools are dedicated to delivering a quality sports administration degree online.
