You don’t need to be an athlete or performer to have a great career in sports and entertainment. The Smith Sports and Entertainment Business Program (SEBP) is a two-week residential program providing rising 10th, 11th and 12th graders an overview of careers in the sports and entertainment industries. Students will learn first-hand from career professionals designed to teach topics such as management, law, negotiation, marketing and leadership as it relates to the sports and entertainment industries. Interactive classroom sessions complement various site visits throughout the Washington Metropolitan area and beyond. The two-week program culminates in a team-based competition at the intersection of sports, entertainment and business by pitching a solution that solves real-life problems in the field. SEBP students learn about college life, live in a residence hall and develop lifelong relationships with fellow participants, undergraduate student mentors, faculty and staff fostering a strong foundation for their future.
