Who We Are:
Sports Business Scholars is an exclusive program for select undergraduate students, offering targeted professional development opportunities to prepare for careers in the sports industry. All scholars participate in a mentorship program, where they are matched with a W. P. Carey Sports Advisory Board member or other sports industry executive as their mentor, as well as an SBS alumni member.
What We Do:
Meetings are held twice a month and include workshops on personal branding, networking, interview technique, and resumes. Scholars are also paired up to teach other members on all available sports industry career paths. Company visits and conference calls with sports executives also take place during the school year. The 2016 outreach trip was in New York City and included visits to all major sports leagues, MSG, ESPN, FanDuel, and The Players Tribune.
