Why SDSU Sports MBA: My first internship with the Cincinnati Reds really opened my eyes to the industry, and made me realize I never wanted to work in anything else other than sports. Sports have always played a large part in my life, and the passion and excitement surrounding the industry makes it feel like it isn’t really work. This program was the obvious choice for me, between the curriculum and the location, I was excited about it the moment I decided to apply.
Favorite class so far: Sports Marketing
Fun fact about you: I have been to 18 MLB stadiums, during 2016 I went to 13 for the first time.
Best out of the classroom activity so far: Volunteering at Padres Opening Day. Opening Day is my favorite day of the year, so the opportunity to help out and then stay and watch the game was awesome.
