SBJ provides comprehensive commentary of the sports business landscape with original reporting and news aggregation. Coverage includes event analysis, transactions, videos, podcasts and editorials from leading practitioners.
"Getting free access to SBJ is huge for our students,” Gary Lhotsky, teaching associate professor, sport management, said. “Having access to learn about current trends in the sport industry is going to be an asset for them. I have used SBJ in my facilities class for readings and quizzes. I am excited to expound on its use in my issues in sport management course, using it for student presentations and in-depth discussions.
Justin Wartella, teaching assistant professor, sport management, agrees that SBJ is vital to keeping tabs on the rapidly moving sport landscape.
“I like my classes to be practical and have relevant and current resources to supplement what they are learning daily. SBJ does just that,” Wartella said. “I think that our students will quickly discover that SBJ is the primary source for up-to-date sports business news and current information across the sports industry."
