Sports & Entertainment Marketing is a new one semester elective that will lead students into two of the most exciting and competitive businesses in the world. Sports and entertainment are everywhere-not just in ballparks and theaters, but at schools, on TV and radio, in stores, and on the internet. The course will do more than just teach students about the two industries. It will help students to succeed in careers in these fields by teaching skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, and key workplace competencies such as responsibility, self-management, leadership, and integrity.
