"To increase your expectation level, you must learn from the best and the precursors" -
Arnaud Bettan, Seagull Sport Business Bootcamp Director
A truly unique experience in the #1 country in the world of sports!
The International Sports Business Bootcamp (ISBB) is a total immersion program that takes our students into the heart of a great American Industry.
What makes our program different is our holistic and individualized approach to sport business educational training. As any professional athlete will tell you a large percentage of playing sports is mental. Our thoughts influence our actions and our actions influence our thoughts. Shouldn’t the same standard be applied to a sports business professional?
At Seagull, we believe that if our students want to work with constantly striving World-Class athletes, then the sports business professional should be someone constantly striving to be the best at what they do. The Profession of Sports Business is as competitive as the sport itself, if not more so. For the instructors and staff at SBB “Excellence” is not a term we use only to describe the athletes we work with. It is an expectation that we demand from ourselves and from every student that goes through our program.
We created a month-long Bootcamp program built around a team concept, hands on experience and experimentation.
You will meet the references of this industry (athletes, agents, brand managers, sports marketing agencies, etc), see the operation of companies from the inside, go backstage of many sports institutions of one of the most iconic sporting cities in the United States, home of legendary sport dynasties such as the Chicago Bears, Chicago Cubs, the Chicago White Sox, Chicago Blackhawks and of course the Chicago Bulls.

Chicago was elected the 2018 most "fun" city in the world by Time Out. In addition to its festive side, the sport is part of the DNA of the city thanks to iconic infrastructure such as the Wrigley Field or the United Center. Several world-class sports teams are the pride of Chicago, including the famous Chicago Bulls basketball players led by the legendary Michael Jordan in the 1990s, the Blackhawks hockey players, the American Bears footballers, the Chicago Cubs Baseball teams and the White Sox.
