Sport Business Industry

I chose to become a professor of Sport Business become I want to prepare students for meaningful careers in the business of sports. I am very proud of the students I have taught, as well as getting hired at Mount Union and being part of a progressive, cutting-edge, well-respected Sport Business program and seeing the great contributions our graduates are making to the sport industry. During my time at Mount Union, I have students actively involved with running events – Sport Marketing Association Annual Conference, Sport Sales Workshop & Job Fair, and the National Sports Forum Annual Conference. Their involvement provides terrific experience that allows them to interact and network with hundreds of sport industry executives from around the country, helping them find their passion.
