Former student Stacey Moses ’05, now in Sport Management says, “I just graduated from Sport Management in April 2005, and I already have a full-time position in the sport industry, working for a golf organization called The First Tee of Pittsburgh. I transferred into Sport Management after my sophomore year at Michigan, after spending two years in LS&A. I really feel that the SM program, thanks in large part to the faculty, gave me a lot more direction and education that could be applied in the business world. I believe that I have a much greater understanding of how the sport industry operates than nearly all of the other people breaking into the field who have a more general business or entertainment education, thanks to the Sport Management program at Michigan.”
