Derek Eiler '93 speaks to students about the importance of social media profiles during his keynote at the 2015 HMSLS Homecoming Symposium

The BGSU Sport Management program prepares students to go on to successful careers in numerous areas. There are many ways for alumni to become involved from mentoring students, speaking opportunities, and attending events. For example, Simone Eli, a graduate of the Sport Adminstration program, spoke to students and faculty about her experiences at BGSU and as a sports anchor. This event was hosted in part by the Richard A. Maxwell Sport Media Project and Sport Management program.

Why Human Movement, Sport and Leisure Studies:

"As an undergraduate student at BGSU I worked in the athletics department and when it was time to pursue a master’s degree there was no doubt in my mind that I would stay in Bowling Green and apply for the Sport Management masters program. I started the program part time while I worked full-time in Athletic Marketing and eventually decided to enroll full-time. "
