My MSBA summer was filled with amazing networking opportunities, invaluable professional learnings, and a new group of friends that I maintain to this day.The community of professionals that MSBA has cultivated is unparalleled and I am honored to be a part of it. As I look back on my own summer experiences, there is no doubt MSBA was the jumpstart that my career needed. I would implore all young sports business professionals to take a serious look at this program and get ready for the summer of their lives.

Throughout our eight-week journey with MSBA, we learned, networked, shared best practices, experienced New York, and most importantly, created an incredible bond that we can eternally thank this program for. The ability to both work hard and play hard with this group of young professionals provided a dynamic that was unique to any of my previous experiences.

From the moment students are accepted into the Manhattan Sports Business Academy, the team works hard to provide the best internship placement, mentor pairing, and networking opportunities to fit each individual. The time and effort that is put into matching and guiding students cannot be found anywhere else.

MSBA is a chance to live in New York City, meet the best of the best in sports business and to establish a professional foundation that will ultimately ensure long, successful careers in our field. MSBA is not an 8-week crash course - it's a career springboard into an incredibly exciting and competitive industry.

If you’d like one tip of advice going into a summer at MSBA, just toss expectations out the window because however high you want to set the bar, MSBA’s always a mile above it. My summer with MSBA cannot be described in words. I have never been more confident and prepared to take on this industry. I don’t know where my career path will go from this point forward, but the one thing I do know is that I will forever thank MSBA.
