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.

MSBA provided an experience both invaluable and game-changing. In just eight weeks, the close relationships I made - and continue to maintain to this day - with my classmates are unique and unparalleled, and it's extremely rewarding to see most of us getting our sports careers underway. No doubt we have the MSBA program, its staff, and our mentors to thank for giving us exposure to one another and to some of the industry's best. I can confidently say that MSBA is one of the smartest professional decisions I've ever made.
