Internship-Field Work/Final Project*
Students completing their course work in the Master of Science in the Sport Business Management program may elect to do a final project in lieu of field work (internship). Eligibility is based on experience and on an individual basis. Internships will be available at an assortment of sports related venues such as, team, leagues and various agencies. The internship provides the student with the opportunity to link sport management theory to sport organization practice. Through internships, students move from the role of student, to the role of professional and thus, expand their career orientation. Significant benefits can accrue to the student who takes advantage of the opportunities which present themselves in various sport settings including the chance to gain valuable work experience under the supervision of a qualified, practicing professional; develop and expand his/her network of contacts and assume responsibility for project development and implementation. A written summary and oral report of the internship is required.
