Internship I

The MPSM 800 (Internship I) program is designed to help you get the most out of your internship in order to prepare you for your career after SIM. The assignments in this course will combine the real world experience gained at the organization at which you are interning with academically guided discussions in a classroom workshop setting.

The internship placement, therefore, should be viewed as a component of a larger, integrated academic experience preparing you for a successful entry into the sports industry immediately upon graduation.
