Why SDSU Sports MBA: While there are many opportunities to expand your education in sports business, the MBA aspect of this program really sparked my interest. The San Diego location also provides ample opportunities to network and gain experience.

Best out of the classroom activity so far: Opening Day for the San Diego Padres – a group of the class had the opportunity to help out for the Padres home opener in supporting day-of logistics by way of promotional item giveaway while ensuring a great experience for all attendees. Once the work was done we were able to catch the rest of the game.
