Online MSA Ranked Among Best in Nation

The Best Schools ranked Canisius University No. 10 on its list of Best Online Master’s Degrees in Sport Management.  Programs were ranked based on quality, curricula, school awards, rankings and reputation.

The Master’s in Sport Administration (MSA) at Canisius blends theory and practice providing hands-on experience in an NCAA D1 program, with access to assistantships, coaching, operations and facility management opportunities.

Canisius’ network of more than 1,400 alumni in the sport industry and its many long-standing professional associations gives the university a competitive edge when it comes to finding valuable internship opportunities for students locally with the Buffalo Bills, Sabres, Bisons and New Era Cap, as well as nationally with other professional and intercollegiate sport organizations.  Faculty with professional experience provide personal mentoring, advising and coaching.

The Richard J. Wehle School of Business maintains accreditation by AACSB International, the premier accrediting agency for business programs in the world.  This standard of excellence is achieved by fewer than five percent of business schools worldwide.
