Testimonials of Alumni:

Sports Business Scholars is a solid experience for those looking to break through into the sports industry.  Being surrounded by fellow peers who share the like-minded desire to succeed only helps to elevate your understanding of the business.  In-depth guest speakers, unique outreach trips, and a faculty dedicated to helping you achieve your goals are a few of the benefits that Sports Business Scholars can offer.”    -Max Simpson, Corporate Partnerships Service Coordinator, Reno Aces & Reno 1868 FC, Class of 2017

“Armstrong Williams once said “Networking is an essential part of building wealth.” The SBS program helped to connect me network externally and internally. Externally I was having phone conversations with Super Bowl Winning general managers, athletic directors, and professional sports teams and organizations. Internally the program connected me with other bright and ambitious sports business students helping me to find others that have the same goals I had of being a leader in the sports world. Today that translates to me having many connections that reach across the country with established and upcoming leaders in the sports world.”  -Antonio J. Cannavaro, J.D. Candidate 2019, Marquette University Law School, Class of 2016

“Being a Sports Business Scholar during my senior year at ASU undoubtedly positioned me for success as graduation approached. Having the opportunity to learn from my mentor, continue to grow both my local and national professional network, and better strengthen relationships with my fellow SBS colleagues and advisors played a key role in my success as a graduate heading into the sports business industry.”    -Marisa Elliot, Partnership Coordinator, Phoenix Rising FC, Class of 2015
