MBA 527 - Olympic/Collegiate Sport Field School

(3cr) A field-experience travel program that takes students on a seminar through an Olympic Training Center and nearby intercollegiate athletic programs, giving them a unique hands-on experience in socio-political workings of Olympic sporting events and intercollegiate athletics. The course is designed to introduce students to the intricate aspects of international sport management, marketing, and sports law; and to provide students with an understanding of the changing context for sport in a global society. Students meet with officials from various governing bodies, attend lectures, and participate in organized class discussions, and tour training and sport facilities. Representatives from Olympic organizations would be included.

Following the completion of each Field School, each student would be required to submit a detailed research paper, similar to a master’s thesis.

NOTE: Costs for travel are an additional expense.
