Talking Up Indiana University-Bloomington and Sports Marketing
I cannot travel to college campuses during this COVID reality, only provide virtual updates. I wrote an update about Indiana University-Bloomington a short time ago. But I also have an opportunity to bring you a recent graduate’s perspective. This past May Jane Silverstein earned her Bachelor’s degree in Sport Marketing and Management from IU’s School of Public Health.
Not only will you learn why she chose IU, and what she liked most about the university; you will also learn about a unique major. Several universities also offer programs in Sport Marketing and Management, most notably the University of Oregon. But the programs vary among schools, not only in courses, but also in where they’re based. IU’s program is based in the School of Public Health. Oregon’s program is based in their business school. Indiana University-Bloomington has one of the best undergraduate business schools that you will find anywhere. Few business schools prepare young people for the workforce better than the Kelley School at IU. But Kelley is also a very competitive and demanding place where students can sink if they do not keep pace with the work.
But while Jane’s program is not based in a business school, it fostered connections that allowed Jane to work at two internships.
The university is also within an hour’s drive of Indianapolis, home not only to the NFL’s Colts and the NBA’s Pacers, but also the Big Ten basketball tournament and football championship game and the NCAA. While there is no announced capital for college sports, Indianapolis can certainly claim the title. With 24 varsity sports, Indiana University-Bloomington also has one of the largest Division I athletic programs in our country. IU also has the second most valuable basketball program after the University of Kentucky.
Listen to Jane as she talks up Indiana University-Bloomington. Check out my update about the university in the College Profiles section of the site. Indiana is a very good school with several marque programs, especially business, media, music and theatre.
