In recent years, more and more countries use sports as a means of social change. Sports have played an active role in promoting youth education, social health, and national economic development. Therefore, the impact of sports development on society is a popular field for sports management scholars to study. However, although the development of sports has brought positive effects on society, some scholars believe that the development of sports has an adverse impact on society. For example, for developing countries, sports are usually controlled by the government, have the political purpose, and the holding of sports events will cause debt problems. In this article, the author focuses on the socio-economic impact of the development of sports, and in particular on the improvement of social employment. The author used a questionnaire survey to investigate a university sports major named Huanghuai University in China. The result is that the development of sports has promoted the growth of the employment rate and that sports education has enabled students to obtain a good educational background and skills, which are favored by employers. In addition, sports education leads to better social needs and support.
