S3 Placement

Center for Sports Strategy and Sales

The S3 program places over 95% of students in full-time positions before graduation. Close partnerships with the teams, leagues, and corporations allow many to receive full-time offers in the fall term preceding graduation. All S3 students are placed in summer internships between the junior and senior year with an organization affiliated with the S3 program. Click here to see the board membership

Since the first graduating class in 2006, S3 has placed hundreds of graduates with professional sports teams & agencies (70%), with the remainder (30%) obtaining full time positions with companies who seek individuals with the skills S3 graduates possess in generating revenue. S3 alumni have successfully moved into leadership roles in sports & related industries.
