I am currently enrolled at Grand Valley State, and I am looking to transfer to a bigger school with a respectable Sports Management/Marketing program for fall 2011. Since I am posting this on MGoBlog, Michigan is probably my number one choice. I was wondering if anybody went through Michigan's sports management program that could share some insight on the field. Going to a school with the name recognition of Michigan has to be a big deal. I was also wondering if there was a big difference in a school like Michigan running their program through the school of Kinesiology while Oregon runs a seemingly similar Sports Marketing program through their business school. Based off my limited findings, it looks like both programs focus on the busines side of the sports industry anyways. I couldn't really find much useful ranking information through google, either. Also, I'm sure Michigan's programs are all somewhat competitive, but how difficult is it to get into?
I appreciate the help, and I look forward to attempting to join the Michigan community in the future! Go Blue.
