MSBA is a fantastic program that offers aspiring sports business professionals a well-rounded experience in the various aspects of our industry – key to a young person’s career development. As MSBA Mentors, we not only have an opportunity to connect with our peers (other Mentors), but we start to build relationships with future colleagues and leaders in our industry. If I am asked to participate as an MSBA Mentor in future years my answer will definitely be yes.
