Preston Robert Tisch Institute for Global Sport
Sport Industry Thesis
The Sport Industry Thesis course is designed for students to complete an independent research study under the close supervision of the course instructor. Under the guidance of a faculty member, students will use skills homed in all courses leading up to the thesis research project, which is expected to combine research, writing, and analytical methods, to demonstrate expertise within a specific area of sport. Students will be expected to conduct a research study over the course of a semester and make a clear, educated final recommendation on how to solve, address or advance a key issue or problem within the sport industry. The thesis should contribute new knowledge to the existing work and research surrounding the industry issue or problem. The thesis, delivered in an extended written report along with a timed presentation, brings together the range of learning interest and outcomes accrued over the duration of study within the B.S. in Sport Management degree.
