Professional Tennis Management
The Professional Tennis Management (PTM) Program is an academic concentration through the nationally accredited (ACBSP) Reeves School of Business. PTM is also offered as a minor for students interested in any of the majors that Methodist offers. Finally, our PTM Program is available to college graduates as an 18 credit hour certificate program. The PTM Program allows for students interested in pursuing a career in the tennis industry to earn a Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts degree in a business-related field with a concentration in Professional Tennis Management or a B.S. or B.A. in one of the 80+ different majors offered at Methodist University with a minor in PTM.
Students are required to complete the USTA sport science level one competency exam, and must obtain a USPTA certification prior to graduation. PTR certifications and Master Racquet Technician (MRT) certifications are also components of the program. Interactive semester seminars are provided for students by national level speakers. Students are also provided with 100% internship and job placement through the PTM industry network.
We prepare our students to enter into the tennis industry to promote tennis and provide the next generation of tennis players with the appropriate skills to be successful on and off the court. PTM students are put through rigorous course curriculum and player development sessions to ensure that they will be the most qualified individuals entering into the tennis industry.
Average Tuition Cost
The average cost for an incoming residential freshman to attend MU is less than $18,000 – similar to the cost of attending one of the big-box public schools, but with the enhanced value of a highly-regarded private school with a 12:1 student-to-faculty ratio.
While tuition varies, depending on a student’s financial aid package, it’s important to know that the average financial award for an incoming residential freshman at MU is more than $34,000.
Financial Aid & Scholarships
More than 97% of MU students receive some form of financial aid, with the University offering more than $24 million annually to students for scholarships. If a student is active military, family of active military, or a veteran, they may also qualify for MU’s military education benefits.
