The Master of Arts in Business with a Specialization in Intercollegiate Athletics Administration (MAIAA) combines faculty from the UNL College of Business (CBA) and Husker Athletics expertise. It provides students with an immersive experience that blends classroom instruction and relevant, real-world experience through a guaranteed internship with Husker Athletics.
The on-campus program, which requires 36 credit hours including the internship, is completed in two years. Students will be challenged with case studies along with written and oral group projects and presentations. They will learn first-hand how an athletic department functions through guided facility tours and guest speaker presentations by current Husker Athletics administrators. The students will also learn professional development and networking skills in order to appropriately market themselves for a successful career in college athletics once they complete their degree.
Graduates of the program will have knowledge of general business issues, and an understanding of collegiate and professional sports business concerns. Admission into the program is competitive with only ten students admitted each year. View the video below and visit cba.unl.edu/maiaa to learn more.
