The Center for Sales Strategy in Sports and Entertainment is the only program in the US focused on generating revenue for sports. S3E graduates have career opportunities in sales, digital marketing or business analytics for major league teams, university athletics, corporations and agencies. Baylor is the only university combining learning with practice in partnership with the Athletics Department to prepare graduates for careers in the business of sports.
The S3E program is unique in vision, values, mission and culture to transform the business of sports and entertainment. Consistent with the Christian mission and purpose of Baylor University, we prepare passionate servant leaders to positively influence lives in places people go to play or watch others play.
To instill integrity in the business of sports and entertainment.
The acronym SIC 'EM represents Spirit, Integrity, Commitment, Empowerment, and Motivation.
To faithfully live lives of integrity marked by a strong work ethic to influence and transform relationships in the sports and entertainment industry one person at a time.
Members of S3E agree to:
- Stay fit
- We bring ourselves to work and school: spiritually, physically, morally, emotionally and financially.
- Make it better
- Make the good better, the better best, never let it rest.
- Take it personally
- Each S3E member takes the S3E vision, values and mission personally.
- Leadership isn’t just getting things done right, but getting things done through other people.
- Replace yourself
- We extend our influence by finding and mentoring replacements.
- Remain open-handed
- We embrace change with an open mind, with open hands and open communication.
- Go the 2nd mile
- Go beyond the minimum. Exceed expectations.
Staying fit, beginning with our spiritual lives, drives overall fitness and behaviors consistent with SICEM values and the other six behaviors to accomplish the S3E Vision and Mission. Going the 2nd mile is the keystone to completing the first six behaviors that permeate the S3E Culture.
The overall goal of S3E and its partners is to transform the business of sports and entertainment to value competitive compensation, work/life integration and fulfilling careers.
Two ways we accomplish this is hosting national collegiate championships in sales (NCSSC) and analytics (NCSAC) and supporting global sports missions. S3E seniors who excel in sales or analytics compete in the national championships.
Those interested in global sports missions are encouraged to give financially and/or to serve with our partners at Hoops for Hope International in global sports missions or Hoops Huddle in Waco sports missions.
