Event Leadership

The sport and recreation industry is unique in that it brings participants, spectators, sponsors, and media together for a wide variety of events.

This concentration is for those students who are interested in the planning and execution of any events related to sport and recreation. Events range from road races and other participation-related events, professional and amateur sporting events, conferences, recreation events, festivals, and more. Students in this concentration are encouraged to find internships that focus on the development of these skills so that they are fully prepared to seamlessly adjust to working full-time for an event immediately upon graduation.
