"With the sports industry being so competitive, it is important to graduate with the skills needed to be successful. The Sport Management program at Winthrop couples a great curriculum with knowledgeable faculty to prepare students for success. The time I spent at Winthrop gave me the learning experience I was looking for. Not only was I receiving a great education, I was also able to take advantage of getting involved with a Division I sports program. Also, with Winthrop’s close proximity to Charlotte, the students have ample opportunities to gain valuable experience working in the industry while attending classes. The curriculum gives the students a great overview of the different paths they can pursue in the sports industry. Courses such as Sport Marketing, Sport Law, and Facilities/Event management truly prepared me for my career and opened my eyes to different areas of sport that I had never thought about. My time at Winthrop was invaluable and I recommend this program to anyone who is passionate about working in sports."
