The world of sneakers and apparel is large and in charge. Whether you’re a collector, athlete or both, then I’m sure at some point you’ve pondered how exactly you can break into the industry. Well, here’s something worth looking into. The University of Oregon has recently started a new Sports Product Management Program in Portland, Oregon with four main components (the first two are based in Portland, the last two in Eugene). There are weekend workshops (2-day workshops for sports industry professionals offered in high-interest topic areas such as sustainability, product merchandising (happening in Portland from Feb 21-22), and marketing (workshops are already in progress)),proposed Masters in Sports Product Management (an 18-month immersion into the complete product life cycle with a focus on the international sports product industry (with a proposed start date of Fall 2015)), MBA with a Sports Product Certificate (starting Fall 2014) and a Bachelor’s Degree in Business with a Sports Product Retail Certificate (starting Fall 2014).
