dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to describe the professional profile of collegiate arena managers. Subjects consisted of collegiate arena managers who were members of the International Association of Assembly Managers (IAAM). The data were analyzed using descriptive analysis of frequency of response and percentages. A self-constructed survey was used to develop a professional profile of collegiate arena managers. The survey was administered using the inQsit program developed at Ball State University.An on-line survey was posted on the inQsit website. Data were collected concerning four research questions. Results indicated females (8%) and minorities (6%) are under represented. The data further indicated that 58% of respondents hold a Masters degree and that 53% recommend future professionals obtain a business administration degree. The results also indicated that prior experience in arena management is necessary to become an arena manager. Duties of an arena manger were varied and numerous, and required long working hours. In addition to addressing the research questions the data showed that computer literacy and technology standards are areas in which arena managers need further investigation. en_US
