"As someone who’s followed NBA player movement and the NBA’s labor negotiations for most of my life, I was in basketball nerd heaven while learning about the CBA/salary cap from Larry Coon, Eric Pincus and Nate Duncan and taking notes on their lectures side-by-side with current assistant GMs and other high level player personnel staff for NBA teams.
I was able to learn from and engage with some of the top minds around the game, but the atmosphere was never overly formal or stuffy.”

Anyone interested in getting a position in a front office with an NBA team should come to this program. I can’t imagine there’s a better program out there where you’re going to meet more people, and be in front of more people, and more importantly more people are going to meet you.
We’re right in the middle of Summer League, and everyone who’s anyone in the NBA is right here in Vegas at the Thomas and Mack Arena.
I guess this is what it must feel like to be in a front office on game day, but it’s been every single day we’ve been here. It’s been incredible. It’s impossible to beat this.
The Sports Business Class came highly recommended, but it exceeded all of my expectations.
It was truly a once in a lifetime opportunity to be fully emerged in the game itself, while also interacting with decision-makers at every level of the NBA.
I learned so much from the instructors, speakers, and my peers. If you love the game of basketball, there is no better place to spend a week.
The schedule is packed with opportunities to learn from innovators throughout multiple fields in the basketball industry; it’s a chance to demonstrate to yourself and prospective employers your commitment to your passion for basketball.
Most importantly, it is a chance to embed yourself within a group of hoops-minded students and form long-lasting relationships that extend beyond the professional realm.
If you want to understand the business of basketball from analytics, to the salary cap, there’s no better place then the Sports Business Classroom.
For me it was my first step in exploring the opportunities in the sports business world... The biggest thing expressed in this program is the importance of building relationships, putting yourself out there, and following your passion. So if you love basketball this is the place to be.
