The Sport and Event Management (SEM) major provides students with a cross-curricular experience by merging coursework from the Sport Business Management degree and the Hospitality Management degree. The SEM program prepares students for careers in event management (virtual, esport, and traditional), sport event management, and facilities management. The program is structured around application-based courses that provide students with hands-on experiences in the sport and event management field as they progress toward their degree.

Business Core Curriculum

The defining element of a Mercyhurst business degree is a series of core courses that all business majors take, which provide a curriculum designed to foster well-rounded business leaders through hands-on learning in a variety of disciplines. Business students will build a foundation in six different areas of study, which prepares our graduates to be adaptable, collaborative leaders that are ready for today’s market. Adding a double major or a minor in another area can only also add marketability for any chosen industry!
