2016 Alumni Survey

The mentorship was a great experience. I entered the requirement unsure of the anticipated outcome. The mentorship was the most practical and useful experience of the entire program thus far. It allowed me to apply many of the things learned during the program and allowed me to explore many topics that everyday commitments do not allow.

Mentorship Student

This mentorship has been a huge step in assisting me with my future plans and goals. I would not trade this experience for any other educational experience. The lessons and information that I have learned in addition to the certifications that I earned will be invaluable to me as I proceed in the future of sport management. I cannot wait to begin my next chapter in life and in starting a business as I now have tools in which I can make the process work to my benefit. I hope the mentorship program stays as part of the academic curriculum because I believe it to be a wonderful educational tool.

John Green, Ed.D., 2016

The Academy was a perfect fit for me and my family. I wanted to take my career to another level and found it to be a rigorous, yet convenient option. The online format, instructors, and depth of coursework really made my experience worthwhile. My experience with the Academy has really helped me personally and professionally. I know there are many people who are in the same situation I found myself in as I started my coursework and I highly recommend them exploring opportunities at the Academy.

John Welch, M.S.S., 2011

My Academy mentorship helped me to learn the proper way to form meaningful connections, to manage personnel, plan an effective practice throughout the basketball season, how to handle recruits, produce different types of marketing tools and how to plan a full season schedule, including travel arrangements. All of these skills will help me in my career. The overall mentorship was a great experience. I feel very well prepared to tackle any job in my field of study.

William Harrison, B.S.S., 2015

I feel that participating in this mentorship allowed me a real-world opportunity to interact with interscholastic high school athletes to understand, from a coach's perspective, the best ways to develop their skills and abilities while also helping them to be successful students and people outside of sport.
