OU's master's in Sports Administration program again named best in the world

Ohio University's sports administration program has won the honor three of the last four years.

Not once, not twice but three times.

Ohio University’s master's in Sports Administration program has been named the best in world for the third time in the last four years.

SportBusiness International, a London-based sports business news service, gave OU’s master’s in Sports Administration program the top spot on its 2015 list of the “best postgraduate sports management courses.”

The distinction was announced May 6 at a sports industry gala in Lausanne, Switzerland.

OU also won the award in 2012 and 2013, but dropped to number two in the world last year, losing to a program organized by the International Center for Sports Studies.

To be considered, programs have to:

  • Be “graduate level"
  • Be “100 percent related to the business and administration” of sports
  • Have been established for more than three years
  • Get an undisclosed number of alumni to respond to a survey created by Sports Business


Once these requirements are met, SportsBusiness ranks programs based on several factors including: alumni employment rate, alumni salaries, course costs, and male to female ratios within programs.

OU also received the “Graduates' Choice” award, which recognizes alumni satisfaction.

The full list of honorees will be revealed in June.

OU offers a two-year dual degree master’s program in sports and business administration, as well as a one-year master’s degree in sports administration.
