Club spotlight: Tulane Sports Business Conference

Club+spotlight%3A+Tulane+Sports+Business+Conference

Whether you are interested in sports, business in the sports industry or marketing and design, the Tulane Sports Business Conference encourages students to take a shot and apply to their emerging organization. With an emphasis on networking, fostering creativity and learning about your passions, TSBC offers a wide array of opportunities for students on different career trajectories.

What might seem like a club is actually run much more like a company, further ensuring real-world experience. So, what is TSBC? 

Josh Millrood, chief strategy officer, described TSBC as “a student-run conference that aims to connect Tulane students to leaders in the sports business industry through unique events, conferences and many other things that are in the works.” Millrood had looked for a club on campus where he could explore his interests within the sports industry, but he struggled to find one that embodied all he was looking for. 

That was, until he stumbled upon the Michigan Sports Business Conference.

The Michigan Sports Business Conference is an undergraduate-run platform founded in 2012 that connects students with current industry professionals and organizations. Millrood, along with other founders Aaron Marasia, Zach Kades and Samson Bennett, used the MSBC as a model in creating Tulane’s conference.   

I was impressed to learn how well thought-out and serious everyone was in making sure it would feel like how a company actually runs. For example, an interest form and an application are required to join. However, CEO Bennett noted that “events are open to any Tulane students — so that’s when students will have the opportunity to network and learn information about the sports business industry.”

On Tuesday, March 5 at 5 p.m., TSBC will host their first-ever event. Agent Rand Sacks, the agent for sports stars such as Michael Jordan, Jason Tatum and Olivia Dunn, will co-host this webinar. Students can RSVP through this link. 

Bennett envisions the webinars will be the focus of the organization. 

“The main goal is to have an in-person conference, similar to Michigan, Syracuse and Penn State,” he said. “[We] have more speakers lined up this semester, we’re calling it a webinar series where industry leaders will bring in different expertise.” 

This organization will continue to grow. After speaking to the CEO Bennett and CFO Millrood, I thought about what I could bring to TSBC that would help. They encourage anyone to showcase their skills, and they are eager to find more people to work on graphic designs. As Instagram and LinkedIn are the main platforms that information is being posted, they are looking for anyone who can showcase their design talents. 

If you foresee a future in sports business, the ball is now in your court.
