In 2011, the KU Sport Management Program established the KU Sport Business Institute (KUSBI) housed in the College of Business. The KU Sport Business Institute's mission is to serve sport industry entities that are in need of logistical, technical, and business strategy services, while allowing Sport Management students to apply current sport management theories and practices and to conduct research in the context of real-world experiences.

The KU Sport Business Institute provides consulting services to sport industry entities at the local, national, and global level in the areas of management, marketing, strategic and policy consulting and research.
