The COSMA Board of Commissioners reviewed Davenport’s program based on the eight COSMA accreditation principles that require an academic unit/sport management program to show that its program displays excellence in undergraduate sport management education and continuous improvement through COSMA’s developmental approach. Davenport University joins 24 other universities across the country with this accreditation, with only one other being in Michigan.
“We are very excited to be officially accredited for our Bachelor of Business Administration in Sport Management,” said Dr. Pamela Imperato, Dean of the Donald W. Maine College of Business and College of Technology. “This is an innovative program that brings together sport specific topics like governance, operations, and global sport issues with a strong foundation in core business subjects. Students learn through case studies, experiential work on real world projects, and while completing two mandatory internships.”
