Entertainment Management

Bachelor of Science in Entertainment Management

Sport and Entertainment Management

College of Business


The entertainment industry is exciting, growing, and filled with opportunities. Students in the Entertainment Management Program are prepared to assume management and ownership positions in the entertainment industry and for graduate studies that will further prepare them to make great contributions to the industry.

Experienced based learning activities prepare our students to view the entertainment industry from the perspective of a potential decision maker rather than the perspective of an entertainer or consumer. The program opens a broad range of possibilities in industry segments from music to casino management. In addition to a general Bachelor of Science degree in Entertainment Management, there will be two areas of program concentration, Music Entertainment Management and Casino and Gaming Management. The rapidly expanding casino gaming economy in the mid-Atlantic region makes this unique program a great platform for success.

Students majoring in Entertainment Management must complete their GER requirements by taking 40 credit hours from the list of GER courses in consultation their academic advisor and 39 credit hours in the College of Business core, 6 credit hours in business electives, 4 credit hours in general electives and 4 credit hours in CSU requirements. In addition, students majoring in Entertainment Management must complete 27 credit hours in Entertainment Management. Further specialization may be achieved by including 15 credit hours of music or casino and gaming as part of the 27 required credit hours.
