IMG's Philosophy

We, at IMG College, pride ourselves on helping our sponsors reach their goals by maximizing their opportunity and sponsorship dollars through an integrated, clearly defined marketing and branding program. We work with you to develop and activate specific solutions that exceed the marketing initiatives of our partners and sponsors. IMG College understands the importance of strong collegiate partnerships and is selective about seeking those relationships. Our University and Conference partners are committed to academic and athletics excellence, but more importantly, are administered by individuals who share common commitments to professionalism, integrity, honesty and our passion for intercollegiate athletics within the framework of higher education.

Anyone can say they are innovative. Anyone can say they execute to perfection. We can and have done this for our partners. We work through three cornerstones of innovative execution - customization, creativity and communication.


We understand that each company is different and has specific goals and measurements of success for corporate sponsorships. We carefully explore the needs of individual companies to determine if their key marketing challenges match up with our capabilities and offerings.

We begin with what's right in front of us. What areas do we have that are a good fit for your needs? Do we have a way to reach that new consumer you're targeting ? When we work with existing or potential corporate sponsors, we customize the sponsorship to maximize the investment of each unique sponsor. While the end result will reflect a clearly defined sponsor category, the components included in the program will vary from sponsor-to-sponsor.


We pride ourselves on creative thinking and developing ideas and programs to increase revenue for our universities through non-traditional programs. Through these strategies we find new and unique platforms for our sponsors to connect with the fans and the student population. We are always looking for ways to positively impact the greater community through these programs.


At IMG College, we take pride in the relationship we have with our schools and our corporate sponsors. We are truly partners and all part of the same team. We value transparency, open, honest and frequent communication. We begin by listening to your needs and then working together to build solutions that are mutually beneficial for our schools and our sponsors. It is a true partnership. We hope you'll join us.
