- SPORTS MANAGEMENT STUDENT
CJ Donegan: Hi, I’m CJ Donegan and I’m a third-year Rawlings Sport Business Management major.
Wayne Ngo: My name is Wayne Ngo. I’m a second-year Rawlings Sport Business Management major.
Donegan: As a junior in high school, I was able to do a week, immersive experience with the program and realized what we’re doing here is what no other program in the country is by taking our students out and being able to have experiences with the (St. Louis) Cardinals, Blues, even all the way out in KC, in Indianapolis and all the way to London.
Ngo: What they do is they make sure that you intern for at least one internship for credit so it gets you to understand how different sports teams work; their operations, their marketing, ticket sales, financing.
Donegan: The classes in the Rawlings Sport Business Management program are very unique to Maryville. They’re very much immersive and experiential learning. We don’t have many tests in this program. It’s all about going out into the field and doing what you’re learning.
Ngo: The professors really want you to graduate and be really successful. They have worked in the sports industry for a very long time.
Donegan: If you’re interested in the Rawlings Sport Business Management program at Maryville, feel free to stop by at any time for a campus tour.
