San Diego Sports Consulting Project

Two weeks in beautiful San Diego, CA earning credits & consulting for the pros

The San Diego Sports Consulting Project (SDSCP) began in 2011 and is designed to give students an opportunity to leverage their existing business skills, as well as develop new ones, in an exciting and challenging sports business environment.

Historically, the San Diego Padres have presented the group of 35 students with a business project focused on ticket sales. Beginning in 2014, Ohio University’s AECOM Center for Sports Administration expanded the number of partners to create a more diverse set of projects.

Past projects have included the San Diego Padres, the National Sports Forum, the San Diego Gulls, PGA Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines, Aztec Sports Properties-Learfield Sports, Connexions Sports & Entertainment, the Greater San Diego Chapter of the ALS Association, and Competitor Group, Inc. (organizers of the Rock 'n Roll Marathon Series).
