Opportunities for Sports Industry Companies and Professionals
Opportunities for sports teams, leagues, and media companies and corporations which use sports to market their products and services are a key component of this Penn State initiative. These opportunities include collaboration on academic research, practitioner research, and consulting designed to address industry, sports specific, and company-centered business issues.
Networking with sports industry leaders, including events sponsored by CSB&R, are another opportunity being developed, along with creating linkages between people working in the sports business and university faculty, staff, and students.
Providing a pipeline of student interns and entry level employees is another opportunity for sports industry companies and professionals partnering with Penn State, including students who have had a chance to develop their skills and prove their passion to work in the business through a variety of on-campus internships. These include internships with Penn State Intercollegiate Athletics, one of the nation’s largest university sports operations.
