Stritch to hold Sport Management Symposium

April 4, 2014

The Sport Science and Management Department at Cardinal Stritch University will hold its second Sport Management Symposium on Friday, April 4 from 9 a.m.–2 p.m. in the Sister Camille Kliebhan Conference Center on the main campus.

The event is open to the public. The symposium will feature keynote speaker Dr. William Sutton, a distinguished academician and a proven sport marketing practitioner whose consulting clients include the National Basketball Association, Ohio State University, the National Hockey League, and the New York Yankees.

The event will also feature panelists in sales and marketing professions from various sports organizations including: the Milwaukee Bucks, Destination Kohler, the Milwaukee Brewers, Kenosha Kingfish, New Balance, Paley Tennis Center, and the City of Greenfield Parks & Recreation.

With the peak of March Madness, the start of the 2014 Major League Baseball season, and the impending start of the Masters and NBA and NHL playoffs, a lot of interest has been directed toward a career in sport. With an estimate economic impact of $145.3 billion, the sport industry is flourishing with opportunities for students and young professionals.

To prepare students for careers in sport, undergraduate sport management programs grew from just three in the United States in 1980 to more than 300 as of 2010, including both undergraduate and graduate sport management programs at Cardinal Stritch University.

The cost to attend the event is $25 for general admission or $10 for Stritch alumni, students, staff, or faculty. For more information or to register, contact Justin Calvert at or (414) 410-4740 or visit
