Stevenson Marketing Class Students Get Backstage Pass To Wrigley Field!

Wrigley Field provided just the right backdrop for Marketing Class students from Stevenson who went on a field trip last week to the historic landmark to learn about working in the sports industry.

Students and staff from the Business Department learned about the history of the Chicago Cubs, toured the ballpark and were given access to exclusive spaces, including the newly renovated visitor’s clubhouse, the dugout, the press box (pictured right) and the field itself.

This experience is a part of the sports marketing unit, in which students create sales and marketing promotions for a professional sports team. Marketing students enjoy an interactive curriculum that includes hands-on course work and sensational field trips each semester.

For more information on business courses at Stevenson please reach out to Jason Ford at jford@d125.org.
