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 a wide variety of positions and organizations.
A truly interdisciplinary minor, sports business offers students the option to take courses in four different departments, including management. Students gain practical knowledge through a capstone project and have the opportunity to supplement classwork through internships and the Sports Business Association, a Chaifetz School of Business student organization.

Students must maintain a minimum 2.00 grade point average (GPA) in all courses used to fulfill minor requirements. If the minor GPA falls below a 2.00, students will have one semester to increase minor GPA to a 2.00 or students will not be allowed to enroll in 3000 and 4000 level minor courses.
