Marketing Electives for Fall 2011

2010 - 2011 Academic Catalog


New major in Sports Marketing in the Marketing Department (Proposed for Academic Year 2011-2012)

The Marketing Department has developed a proposal to launch a new major in sports marketing.  The proposal is currently undergoing review in the university governance system, and we expect approval in the spring and implementation in the fall.  We have already received authorization to hire a new faculty member in sports marketing.


As the sports industry continues to expand, as measured by more leagues, teams and events; interest in fantasy leagues; many more media choices and a huge increase in programming; expanded front office staffs; etc., there is increasing and significant interest in sports business as a career choice.  Admittedly, there are always more people interested in sports jobs (everyone thinks he/she can become "assistant travelling secretary" right away), but these organizations need people, and they typically hire their interns for entry level positions.

Proposed curriculum

Business Core       

MKT 201 Principles of Marketing


Major courses - required (3)

MKT 351        The Business of Sports

MKT 353        Sports Marketing

MKT 490        Internship in Sports Marketing


Major courses - optional; choose three (3) courses from:

MKT 352        Sports Law

MKT 354        Baseball: Tradition and Business

MKT 3xx         Sports Sales and Selling   

MKT 3xx         Sports Media

MKT 3xx         Sports Licensing and Merchandise

MKT 3xx         Facilities and Game Day Management

MKT 3xx         Managing a College Athletics Department

Additional courses may be added as the program grows.  For example, we could conceivably offer a course in concessions and merchandise management and a course in sports sponsorships.  In addition, preliminary discussions have been held with faculty in finance and decisions sciences regarding possible courses down the road in sports finance and sports statistics.  



Announcement: Consistent with the spirit of the proposed new SJU curriculum, the Marketing Department is revising its degree requirements to allow more flexibility in course selection.  Under the new curriculum, current upper class students  (i.e., Classes of '11, '12, '13) are responsible for SIX upper-division marketing major courses, including Marketing Research, Consumer Behavior, Marketing Communications, Marketing Strategy and any two other marketing courses.

International Marketing has been dropped as a core course.  Upper class students who have already taken International Marketing can use this course to fulfill a General Marketing 300-400 level MKT elective.
