UWindsor’s Master of Human Kinetics program in Sport Management has been ranked among the top 25 programs of its kind in the world for the third straight year, according to SportBusiness International’s 2014 Postgraduate Sports Course Rankings.

The survey, launched in 2012, has placed UWindsor’s program among pinnacle programs internationally because of its favourable showing in such categories as student satisfaction, class size, job support, and employment within three months of graduation.

The program is offered through the Department of Kinesiology and features both internship and thesis options and guides students to careers in areas that include professional sport organizations; sporting goods and apparel firms; national/provincial sport governing bodies; municipal recreation; culture and tourism departments; sport agencies and higher education.

“We are the only university in Canada ranked among the top 25,” says Jess Dixon, an associate professor in the Faculty of Human Kinetics and graduate of the Sport Management program.

“The sport industry field is growing at a rate that exceeds the global GDP and we are on the cutting edge of scholarship, research and experiential learning at the University of Windsor. We know that the SportBusiness survey has garnered the attention of both students and professionals from around the world. Thanks to our placement in these rankings we can confidently tell our students what we have always known; they are attending one of the most prestigious sport management programs in the world.”
