Northcentral University knows that the need for well prepared educational leader leaders has never been greater. Today the Ed.D. has evolved to a terminal degree of choice for educational practitioners. The online Ed.D. attracts learners who have leadership responsibility for providing learning/training to others, whether they be in colleges, PK-12 schools, proprietary organizations, private and public businesses, or the military. The Sports Management & Leadership specialization was created to meet the needs of a rapidly expanding and changing multi-billion dollar sports industry, providing learners an opportunity to expand their knowledge. Dr. Lynn Lashbrook, President and Founder of Sports Management Worldwide (SMWW) serves as a faculty mentor. Sports leaders are invited by Dr. Lashbrook, throughout the year to participate in audio chats, giving the students the opportunity to learn firsthand about the real world of sports.
