Alumni Testimonial

“While the course load in the Sports Business Master’s program provided me with immense knowledge of the sports industry, the networking and internship opportunities were equally as important in helping me achieve my professional goals. Without the connections I developed during the internships that Temple helped me to obtain, I wouldn’t be in the position I’m in today!”
