ESPN representatives were on campus in late February to visit with Mville students and describe the behemoth ESPN empire and job opportunities. About 50 Mville SBM students and undergraduate students piled into the East Library to hear Brian Morton (a Human Resources executive with ESPN) and David Waters (an account executive at ESPN Radio) talk about careers, the company and career advice in general. This visit was part and parcel with the vibrant partnership the sport business management program has forged with the "sports leader."
