Purchase, NY November 5, 2015 -- Manhattanville College School of Business will sponsor its eighth annual Sports Business Management Career Fair, featuring over 30 nationally recognized sports industry exhibitors; keynote speaker Brandon Steiner, founder and chairman of Steiner Sports Marketing and Memorabilia; and several hundred attendees.  The free event takes place on Friday, November 20 from 10 AM to 2 PM at Reid Castle on Manhattanville’s campus in Purchase, NY.
 
Attendees interested in pursuing a sports career can meet with hiring managers and leaders of sports organizations such as ANC, Sirius/XM Sports, New York Mets, ESPN, Octagon, USTA and Webster Bank Arena.  In addition to the exhibits and keynote speaker, the popular event will this year feature a new entrepreneurship panel in conjunction with Latin Business Today.
 
“We are pleased to continue to offer this career fair, free of charge and open to the public, as an outgrowth of our successful Sports Business Management graduate program at Manhattanville,” said Dave Torromeo, director of the Sports Business Program at Manhattanville.   
 
“Based on the sport business curriculum we have developed, our convenient location, and relationships with sports business leaders, hosting events like this is a natural,” he said.  “They are an invaluable tool for the industry and for students interested in a career in sports.”
 
The fair gets rave reviews from exhibitors.   Michelle Piechowski,  senior director of global human resources at The Topps Company, says, “We absolutely will be attending the career fair, and we are looking forward to another event as successful as last year’s when we had a lot of interest.”  Students come from the Hudson Valley, Greater New York and as far away at Syracuse and Florida to attend the fair.   
 
The nine-year old Sport Business Management graduate program at Manhattanville is the only one in the greater Westchester and Fairfield County area to offer a fully accredited Master’s degree.  The college has in recent years expanded its offerings with a Sports Studies undergraduate program and a Dual Degree, making Manhattanville the premier destination to learn about all areas of the sports related curriculum and to create the next wave of leaders for the sport business industry.
 
Brandon Steiner, the keynote, is the founder and chairman of Steiner Sports Marketing and Memorabilia, the largest company of its kind in America.  Considered a sports marketing guru, he is a permanent fixture in the media as a regular on ESPN NY Radio 98.7 FM and appears frequently on CNBC, CNN, MSNBC and ESPN.
