Sports Strategy & Sales (S3) Alumni

S3 team, company and agency partners are 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. Each S3 student is encouraged to reach out to the alumni below to grow networks and find mentors.

Placement is 95% by graduation and 100% within three months of graduation. Recent graduates in analytics have started between $45,000 to $73,000. Recent graduates in sales earn salary and commissions in the $40,000 to $60,000 range.
