Sport Management Fellows

Smith alum Tyrone Brooks, Director of Player Personnel, gives tips on getting into the sports management business

The Sport Management Fellows program focuses on the world-wide enterprise of sports, including organized collegiate and professional sports arenas and auxiliary industries such as sports apparel and equipment. Sport Management Fellows will network with and learn from professionals in the sports industry.

The faculty champion for this program is Gideon Mark.

Curriculum: one-year program

  • BMGT 488A (Introduction to Sport Management) - Fall 
  • BMGT 450F (dedicated Fellows section of Integrated Marketing Communications) - Spring 
  • NOTE: Sport Management Fellows is a 2-semester sequential program with a dedicated Fellows section each semester. In order to make it possible to study abroad during the program, students would be allowed to enroll in any open section of BMGT450 upon return. This would make it possible for students to complete the program, but students who wish to study abroad will miss out on the special co-curricular activities. Ideally, these courses should be taken with the cohort.
