Sport Management Internships

The Department of Commerce encourages students to pursue internship opportunities to gain hands-on experience and the opportunity to apply concepts learned in the classroom. An internship is an important experience for career readiness, enhances a student's resume, and can elevate a student's application for graduate education and professional schools.
