Sport marketing is offered as a new major as of the fall semester of 2016. AU’s sport marketing major is unique:
- We combine marketing, business, and sport management classes to give you a well-rounded academic experience.
- We focus on hands-on projects and experiences that translate into employable skills. Our students don’t just talk about sport marketing, they do sport marketing.
- We have a growing athletic program on campus that provides a lab for sport marketing students to practice what they are learning in the classroom.
- We have an all-star advisory council of sport marketing professionals ready to invest in our students and share their experiences.

*Due to it being a new major, Sport Marketing has not yet been accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs.
