MPSM-845-101

Brazil Global Sporting Immersion

Global Sporting Events such as the Olympics, the World Cup, the Super Bowl, and other annual championships, etc., have the ability to bring not only revenue to a country, state, region or city but can define a community’s image to the world. This interdisciplinary course will focus on the business of putting on a global sporting event from the bidding process to the economic development and political implications involved with the building of facilities, security, sponsorships to game day execution and fan engagement. The connection between the development of the economy of a country and sports is becoming stronger. This course will look at the many parts that make up a country’s path to hosting a global sporting event, how trends are changing in choosing host cities, how sustainability is a dominant factor, and how profit is one, but not the only, measurement of success.

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. These two strategies - classroom/theoretical training and professional/practical experience - complement each other and together will ground you in the reality of daily life in the sports industry, while at the same time enable an increased understanding of professional culture. 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.
