Hi, I'm new to the board and not as intelligent as most of the people here, but I was wondering what are some good schools for business management and even sports management. I do not want to be a sports agent, but would like to work in a professional sports organization and my "dream job" would be a general manager.
I just started my junior year, but I go to a college prep school that is demanding and annually sends about 8 to 10 kids out of a class of 220 to top 25 schools. I actually just took the PSATs and felt pretty good (last year I got 194). I have about 98% avg., but don't know what this is GPA-wise.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I'm especially interested in schools around the Chicago and Boston areas.
Thanks a lot and I would be really grateful to get some responses.

no offense, but your school cannot be that demanding if u only send 8-10 to top 25 universities per year. last year out of 310, my public high school sent 50+ to top 25 unis!

I go to a Catholic school and although we only send about 10 kids to the top schools it is mainly because of the fact most kids cannot afford it. Of our top 25 kids last year 22 got full rides to collegese in the area and decided to stay instead of go out-of-town and have to take out loans. 50+ out of 310 is really impressive.
Any feedback about good business/sports management schools I would really appreciate.
Thanks for responding.

The University of Denver's Daniel School of Business has an excellent sports management concentration. Other schools with sports managment programs: U Mich - Ann Arbor, Indiana U, Arizona State, Elon U (NC), Temple (PA), Wingate (NC), Stetson (FL), Western New England College, U of Oregon, University of the Pacific (CA). Unfortunately, in many of these schools "sports management" is not located in the business school but in the leisure studies or sports department. Compare courses and programs carefully to see if you really want this type of program or would prefer something broader (that's why I mentioned U of Denver - their program is business focused).

The University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign is a Big 10 school with a sports management program. It's in the College of Applied Life Studies, not in the College of Business, but it's a good program, and you could always do a double major in some field of business and sports management. Anyway, it's something to look into. www.uiuc.edu

Thanks for the help guys. I have been looking at UIUC, but I also considered trying to get into a fitting ivy (maybe Cornell) or top 25 school and then possibly going to law school. This is what Theo Epstein (GM of the Red Sox), but I may just go straight into sports management. I'm doing an internship with a minor league baseball team in Buffalo this summer. Thanks again for the advice.

try www.nassm.com for sports management schools, I'm looking at Bowling Green, Ohio, UMass, Tennessee, and South Carolina.
