Atlanta’s Sport Business Industry — Glimpse Behind the Scenes Positions

The sports business industry is an estimated $400 billion a year enterprise.
Over the next three years, Atlanta will be at the epicenter of the sport world.

We’ve got a new soccer team (Atlanta United FC! Yeah!), the Super Bowl is coming (Super Bowl LIII, Feb. 2019!), the Atlanta Falcons played Super Bowl LI. 2017

Let’s face it, Atlanta is a sports town.

Besides all the above, we’ve also got the Atlanta Braves (World Series champs 1914, 1957 and 1995) baseball, the Hawks for basketball and numerous college sports teams (go Panthers!) that play in the city.

This is the perfect place for you to get a glimpse of what goes on with the positions behind the scenes. Learn about one of the the largest industries in the country right here at GSU in the ATL.
