This last week I was fortunate enough to have a fellow Tar Heel speak to the women of our MSBA program and hear Dr. Deborah Stroman, a Professor at the University of North Carolina (Chapel Hill) in the Department of Sport and Exercise Science speak about what it means to be a woman in sports.

She was very enlightening and reminded us to have specific goals — both personal and professional — and to not be afraid to ask and reach for those.

Over these last three weeks, MSBA has been honored to have different speakers come in across the entire industry to talk to us about their experience and how they each got their start. No story is the same and each person sheds new light on another area of the business world. It has been an honor and a privilege to hear each and every one of these speakers and am extremely appreciative of the effort and time the MSBA team has put in to make this such an amazing summer.

We are not even half way done but have had opportunities that most people will not get in a lifetime. I am working with a product development company this summer on the sports marketing side. Each day I am learning something new about the entire process and the time and effort it takes to make the product and the steps you need to take to get to the final product.

These are some things I would never even think of if I wasn’t there helping! This summer has hit all of my expectations so far. I am very excited to see what is in store for me at not only at my internship but also what other amazing speakers and events I get to see and hear thanks to the great team at MSBA.
