In the Big Leagues

Here’s a daunting piece of class homework: Define Seton Hall’s essence in a phrase. That was the ambitious assignment FOX Sports gave a sport marketing class at the Stillman School of Business in January as part of a marketing initiative for the BIG EAST conference.

Larry McCarthy — an associate professor who teaches in the sport management program and whose students routinely work in marketing internships at such area teams as the Yankees, Mets, Nets, Knicks and Devils — divided his class into six groups of five to develop proposals for “the BIG EAST Way,” a campaign spotlighting the attributes of member schools.
