I would also suggest a MBA, especially if you will be selling large packages for the sports team/club. Important to fully understand how business works and then as you speak to investors or firms who are spending large amounts with the program, important for you to be credible.

Enjoy the program.

Hi Austin!

Congrats on the upcoming college journey!! I'm so happy you have a path in mind...you are way ahead of me when I was your age!!
