I am proposing a four year program that would provide for a bachelors degree in business while giving students a great deal of access to communication and entertainment. It would focus primarily on the business aspects of sports franchises and how it has become such a huge entertainment field. Students would complete a great deal of their prerequisite business classes during their first year as well begin some of the entertainment classes. There would be no GEs. During year 2 they would study in a different city in the US that features a great deal of sports and entertainment - meaning it would have to be big cities. They would take classes at a partnering institution while interning for a company in the related fields. Classes they would take would include some of the standard prerequisites that can be taken at any prestigious university. Year 3 would take place abroad where again they would take relevant classes at a school while learning about the international market for all of this. Year 4 would conclude back at USC and would include a lot of small classes focusing on future growth. The purpose of this program is to give kids with a passion for sports and entertaining the ability to understand all that is necessary to put on an event. It would deal with marketing and branding of sponsors and teams. There would be finance involved. As well as a lot of entertainment classes about the television industry. There would be classes that focus on digital trends and technology and the future of sports statistics and tracking.The movie Moneyball revealed to the world the art of sabremetrics and in-depth statistical analysis is growing across all sports, especially basketball.
