No one was surprised when Zach Ipson was named our next Student of the Week. Zach has taken the lead on conducting Financial Accounting study sessions in addition to his volunteering outside the classroom, including this past weekend’s Rally for San Diego at Petco Park.
Hometown: North Las Vegas, NV
Undergraduate College: BYU
Favorite sport to play: 1. Lacrosse 2. Basketball 3. Running
Favorite Sports Movie: Space Jam (even though as a Utah Jazz fan I still have hard feelings towards MJ)
Why SDSU Sports MBA: Like many other people, I love sports. It has impacted my life in positive ways. It is something that I enjoy and am passionate about. I feel like this program offers me the opportunity to combine work and passion to further my career. My current career goal is to work in the sports industry (team, organization, or sports-related company) in a finance-related role.
Favorite class so far: Sports Marketing. It is interesting to discuss the (irrational) consumer behaviors of sports fans.
Fun fact about you: Right before I was born, my dad used the game clock of the UNLV vs. UNR basketball game to time my mom’s contractions at the hospital.
Best part about the Farmers Insurance Open: My favorite part of the Farmers Insurance Open was meeting and connecting with new people (volunteers, staff, etc.).
Check back next week when Zach chooses the next winner of Tez!
