College students studying business will find many career opportunities in sports management upon graduation. The Maine Business School at UMaine capitalized on the demand for college graduates with business degrees by creating a new sports management major. 

In Episode 5 of Season 5 of “The Maine Question,” Jason Harkins, associate dean of the Maine Business School, and Muralee Das, an assistant professor of management, discuss the employment prospects in the sports management field. Both helped create the new sports management major.
