Information Technology in Sport Management Curricula

We study the breadth of inclusion of information technology in sport management (SM) programs, surveying program sponsoring colleges and universities within a prominent state-university system. Our results indicate a very low number of SM programs require any type of information technology courses as part of their core requirements. In fact, only three programs have a requirement for a technology course specific to SM. To aid in the adoption of software and information technology into SM programs, we researched software systems that may provide skills to enhance the various components of SM. In an effort to make our recommendations even more meaningful, we pair specific software programs and their attributes with particular courses in SM. Moreover, we consider the common professional component requirements of the SM accrediting body Commission on Sport Management Accreditation and make suggestions as to how our software discoveries might aid colleges and universities in meeting accreditation requirements.
