The range of employers and careers in the sports world is vast, and the Gabelli School of Business has established a secondary concentration to prepare students for them. A secondary concentration is an "overlay" that can be pursued on top of any major — marketing, finance, business administration and so on — to give your Fordham degree an extra edge.

Students who focus on sports business take these courses:

          • Sports Marketing
          • Business of Sports Media
          • Sports Law
          • Sports business capstone component

If you're interested in the area where business and sports meet, you'll find tons of like-minded classmates at Fordham. There's a club called the Business of Sports Society that brings in speakers from the New York Yankees to sports media giant IMG.

You will also have the opportunity to hold sports-related internships in New York City, which is home not only to Fordham, but also to 11 professional sports teams, all major networks, media powerhouses, and agencies that represent athletes across sports.

Meet some of our students who have had great sports-related internships or experiences already. Start thinking about what yours will be.
