Interested in getting a foot-in-the-door in the sports business industry in the summer of 2012?
Looking for the advantage you need to in order to begin your career in sports business?
The Manhattan Sports Business Academy (MSBA), an 8-week sports business leadership program that will take place in New York City this upcoming summer, was recently launched at the Ivy Sports Symposium on November 18, 2011 at the Wharton School in Philadelphia. MSBA is a mentoring program that will give undergraduate and graduate students the skills and resources to get a career in the highly competitive sports business world.
MSBA provides a carefully selected group of 25 students with a comprehensive learning experience that includes internship placement, career development workshops, weekly guest speakers, one-on-one mentoring with established sports industry professionals, weekend group outings, and an optional fitness and training component. Participants in this program will have the opportunity to intern with teams, leagues, agencies, and events in the area of focus that interests them such as marketing & sponsorships, event management, public relations, and athlete representation.
Ben Sturner and his team have attracted a list of 45 notable industry executives who will speak to the MSBA participants as part of a weekly guest lecture series. Some of the confirmed speakers are Mark Tatum (Executive Vice President of Global Marketing Partnerships at the NBA), Dan Singer (Director at McKinsey & Company), Todd Kaplan (Director of Sports Marketing at PepsiCo), and Brett Yormark (President and CEO of the Brooklyn Nets).
MSBA serves as a valuable experience for young professionals looking to jumpstart their career in sports and get the job they have always dreamed of. Check out www.gomsba.com, the official MSBA website, to learn more!
