Jayhawkville is the name of our interactive virtual learning interface as well as the fictional city it depicts. Graduates from our online program may go on to work in vastly different organizations around the country, so we’ve created a digital space that allows them to experience the realities of working in areas that have different demographic, economic, racial, and ethnic characteristics, as well as varying levels of historical athletic success.

The University of Kansas is committed to connecting passion to success by training sport management professionals to navigate modern hurdles in the industry and work within complex and varied organizations. The ultimate goal of our online master’s in sport management is to help them step into their desired role and become an invaluable asset to their team.

To accomplish this goal, we built Jayhawkville, a versatile digital learning environment that gives students the chance to work through contemporary issues, handle relevant projects, and “see” sporting facilities and the communities they reside in from new and different perspectives.

Our new mentorship program is designed to give you connections and a friendly helping hand nearly anywhere you go. From the beginning of the master’s program, each student will be paired with an alumni mentor from organizations like San Francisco 49ers, UCLA, and the University of Notre Dame, who will help collaborate on your assignments, review resumes, provide networking tips, make introductions to potential employers, and support and guide the student throughout their time at KU.
