SPB 597 - Internship in Sport Business

6 credit hours
Prerequisites: All MBA and SPB courses required for the MBA with a concentration in sport business. Course may be concurrently taken with one other required course. Its intent is to be the final culminating experience prior to the completion of the MBA with a concentration in sport business using the information learned in all previous courses. Students should understand that some organizations may require 40-hour workweeks and should consider having completed all coursework. .
Students will be supervised by a sport business faculty member and sport organization on-site coordinator in an internship approved at least one month prior to the start of the intended semester. Students must work a minimum of 20 hours per week. However, it is strongly suggested that students seek out a paid 40-hour-per-week internship with a sport business in the selected field of their choice. This course cannot be taken by individuals currently working for a sport organization. Its purpose is to help individuals gain full-time employment with a sport organization. The internship shall last a minimum of 16 weeks and is a full academic course.
