May 16, 2014 (Jackson) - Belhaven Head Football Coach Hal Mumme believes that success in the classroom is just as important as success on the field and that is why he chose to speak about Belhaven's Master of Sports Administration (MSA) online program.

The MSA program equips graduates for leadership within the sports management industry. Sports administration encompasses a variety of occupations; sports regulations, marketing, negotiations, budgeting, research, project management and retail are all important and relevant segments in the world of sports.

This graduate program takes two years to complete and offers classes in manageable, eight-week terms. Project-team activities within each course enhance the learning process and develop problem-solving skills, while allowing individuals to develop their ability to function with a team. With a degree from Belhaven's online sports management degree program, students will be able to compete in this fast growing industry.
