Why SDSU Sports MBA:  SDSU Sports MBA is like no other MBA. Not only are we provided with an accelerated MBA program with extensive alumni and networking opportunities, but we also get a specific application of the material to sports business. I was attracted to the small cohort sizes and exclusivity, as well as the amazing speakers and trips/tours we get to go on. We have an endless supply of resources to set us up for success in the careers we choose to pursue.

Favorite class so far: Sports Marketing and Finance

Fun fact about you: I skipped Grade 3.

Best out of the classroom activity so far:  The tour of Chula Vista Elite Athlete Training Center was truly inspiring. We had Lex Gillette, which was one of my favourite speakers we have had thus far. His story and work is nothing short of amazing. I can’t wait to work with him in the future.
