Sports Business, Minor

While working with a major sports team may be the inspiration for pursuing a minor in sports business, Saint Louis University's coursework prepares students for careers in various positions and organizations.

The interdisciplinary sports business minor offers students the option to take courses in three different disciplines. Students gain practical knowledge through a capstone project and have the opportunity to supplement classwork through internships and participation in the Sports Business Association, a Chaifetz School of Business student organization.
