Executive Master of Sport Business Sample Class

Join us for a unique opportunity to preview a course from the School of Sport, Tourism and Hospitality Management’s distinguished Executive Master of Sport Business program. One of the only programs of its kind in the nation, this program combines coursework from STHM’s globally-ranked Sport Business master’s program and the Fox School of Business’ Online MBA – the #1 program in the nation by US News & World Report.

John Allgood – Academic Director for the Executive Master of Science in Sport Business Program & Assistant Professor of Practice – will deliver a course entitled The Rise of Innovation in Sport Consumption. This class will explore the current trends in today’s society around sport consumption and will dive into 1) how fans are currently watching their favorite sports teams through different platforms; 2) where it is trending; for example, Amazon and Facebook are aggressively going after broadcast rights for leagues and teams. During this class, John Allgood will highlight ESPN’s changing strategy in our current environment and how we, as sport business professionals, can compete in the future of sport consumption.

The sample course session will give students a glimpse of how this online program will offer current and aspiring sport industry professionals cutting-edge insight into this booming field.
