The highlight of the Siena Heights University Sport Management Program is the field experience component that provides students the chance to complete two practical, real world experiences.
The first is a 150-hour practicum that gives students an introduction to the sport field and lets them explore possible careers.
During their senior year, students complete a 40-hour per week internship that spans an entire academic semester. This experience gives students the opportunity to gain valuable experience related to their career aspirations and a chance to begin building their own professional network.
Students have completed internships at a variety of college, professional, and other sport organizations including the following:
- Detroit Tigers
- Detroit Red Wings
- Lenawee County YMCA
- Michigan International Speedway
- Michigan State University Athletic Department
- Palace Sports and Entertainment
- The University of Toledo
- Toledo Mud Hens
- University of Tennessee Athletic Department
