Advisory Board

Along with our name change and move to Seattle University’s Albers School of Business and Economics, the Master in Sport Business Leadership program is excited to announce the inaugural MSBL Advisory Board.

The advisory board will help further the aims of MSBL by providing input on the program and curriculum, and developing relationships with sport industry leaders to help our students make connections and learn from experienced industry professionals.
