Sports Strategy & Sales (S3) Alumni

We view our team, company and agency partners as fellow educators interested in the development of talent in Sports Strategy & Sales. Since launching S3 in 2006, S3 alumni continue to provide direct input and participation with curriculum, recruitment, and events.

S3 students major in marketing and choose either S3 Sales or S3 Analytics tracks that determine internship and careers with a company, agency, third-party rights holder, professional team or NCAA member.
