Consulting for the Boston Red Sox

In 2015, Explo Sports Management students pitched marketing campaigns to Red Sox executives at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts.

Branding Athletes, Marketing Teams
Think about it: your future could hinge on how well one athlete performs, or whether the team makes the postseason. It could also depend on whether your client is a media darling, on whether you’re able to negotiate contracts that attract top talent (while meeting the bottom line), and on whether your team is good enough — or beloved enough — to actually attract enough fans to fill stadiums. It’s a giant risk — but that’s what makes it so much fun.

Playing With The Bigs (While Learning the Game)
At Explo Sports Management, we’ll introduce you to big players in the field of sports management — from industry pros at NBC Sports, ESPN, and the Red Sox, to business executives, sports management professors, and wearable tech gurus — and you’ll collaborate with your team in challenges that test everything from your negotiating abilities to your skills as masters of logistics and marketing.

No Time Outs (And No Lectures)
From day one, you’ll be in the driver’s seat. You won’t be sitting in lectures in this program. Instead, you’ll be learning by doing. Through our Sports Management boot camps, you’ll develop the skills you need to create on-point marketing and business solutions.

This is No Game — Real World Projects
Through the course of the program, you’ll be tackling the same projects and issues that face sports executives today. In fact, you’ll be pitching your solutions to (and networking with and getting feedback from) real industry professionals, who will be hoping to run with your ideas.
