We are builders, managers, surveyors, estimators, schedulers, safety specialists, project superintendents, field engineers, and above all: fun people to interact with.
Marketing, Economics and Sports Business
Marketing, Economics and Sports Business -- why are these academic degree programs in the same department? Not by accident, we assure you. All three majors stem from the study of the markets in which business and society functions. The discipline of economics provides the foundation for the way we think about all kinds of markets. It's not too much to say that the general practice of marketing is based in large part on economic principles and shaped by national and global economic policy. The business of sports, particularly professional sport, has its own unique configuration of economic conditions, a bit different from conventional consumer markets, that govern competition.
