Sports Marketing

How to address markets successfully

In the Excellence Program “Sports Marketing”, students develop their knowledge so as to best be able to approach customers. Based on the fundamental expertise imparted in the fields of market research, customer behaviour and psychology, students examine the role of brands in the sports business industry in detail.

Market segmentation and penetration with a particular focus on online channels is then discussed and applied in case studies. Students develop their knowledge of yield management by working with concepts such as customer lifetime value, customer relationship management, sponsorship and new business models such as “Freemium”.

Sample questions:

  • How can star players help me to boost my merchandising revenue?
  • How can I define the right claim for my brand?
  • Which sponsorship partners are right for me?
