In any career, it is passion that drives us. We stay motivated, inspired and committed; turning that passion into a profession. A career in tennis means you go to work in a business that is people-centered, passion driven, and service-oriented in a sport that you love. Ferris State’s PTM program is the best way to enter the tennis industry.

Started in 1986, the Professional Tennis Management program has been the leader in training and educating students seeking outstanding careers in the tennis industry. The four- year program leads to a Bachelor of Science degree in Business, with a choice of a Marketing or Resort Management concentration. For PTM graduates, employment opportunities exist in traditional careers such as a ClubManager, Director of Tennis, Head Professional or Assistant professional.

However, your degree allows you the opportunity to have a career in other tennis industry and business careers. A PTM student not only receives hands-on tennis management experience, but is exposed to some of the best practices in the business. Our paid-internships span the country and our graduates have a 100% job placement when they finish their education. Upon graduation students will have earned both their USPTA and PTR tennis professional certifications.

Join us at Ferris State University and begin your career in a profession you’ll love!
