The Rankin Cooter Bureau for Sport Business Research conducts research in the areas of sport marketing, sport finance, event management, facility operation and other areas of sport administration. The state of the art facility contains twelve computer work stations (MACs and PCs) with internet access and sport specific software such as StatCrew, SPSS, Photoshop, and InDesign. There are also extensive resources including journals, data bases and other publications which are available to faculty and students conducting sport management research.

The lab also serves as a great place to meet up with fellow students in the program to work on projects or a quiet area to study for that next big mid-term or final. Sometimes the library can be a little hectic to print from and the Lab has its own printer as well. However, students are required to bring their own paper for the printer. There are usually 1-3 Research Lab Graduate Assistants in the Lab at all times to help with any computer problems. The lab is generally open between 10 AM – 5 PM Monday through Thursdays and is located in room 123 in the Sports Arena.
