Sports Business Classroom Announces GM Academy Virtual Experience in December 2021

Sports Business Classroom (SBC) announces new program GM Academy Virtual Experience taking place December 27-29!

After a strong year for SBC highlighted by the Draft Academy Virtual Experience and the return of the Immersive Experience in Las Vegas during NBA Summer League, we will wrap up this record year with the GM Academy.  Hosted by former Phoenix Suns General Manager Ryan McDonough, GM Academy’s curriculum is designed to prepare students for what it takes to be an effective front office executive and provide best practices for team, league, agency and media situations.

Students will learn and participate in topics such as draft capital, the trade process, basketball analytics, the business of basketball, collective bargaining agreement, trade deadline exercises, draft day exercises and much more. This program is the perfect opportunity for students to refine their elevator pitch and build their network with league executives and each other. 

The Sports Business Classroom has an impressive list of alumni and an ever expanding connected network.  During the 2020-2021 business calendar, alumni from our programs have filled 38 positions within the sports industry.
