Bring the same content into your classroom that more than 300 sports franchises have been using for decades
Historically, students interested in entering the world of sports business would obtain a general degree and then scramble to find a job in sports. But in recent decades, colleges and universities everywhere have introduced degree programs centered on sports marketing, sports administration and sports management. These are specific undergraduate and graduate programs designed to produce professionals with industry knowledge and practical experience in sales, marketing, business management, and operations—all with an eye toward professional and intercollegiate sports and the products and services that support them.

We Invented the Sales Academy
As far back as 1999, Game Face was innovating the way students were prepared for successful sports careers. The Game Face Executive Academy—later rebranded as the Sales Academy—took young people eager to enter the industry and coupled their formal education with sport-specific training, followed by introductions to hiring managers from teams and organizations in all markets. With hundreds of candidates successfully placed into a variety of entry-level, full-time positions, higher education, franchises and leagues began adopting the Game Face model at job fairs, practicums and multi-day forums. Pioneered by Game Face, the concept of a skills training sales academy is now a staple throughout sports today. We know how to teach the critical skills organizations are demanding from new hires because we’re in their offices virtually every week. It’s no wonder that many of today’s sports leaders began their careers at the Game Face Executive Academy.
