Our Georgetown University’s Sports Industry Management co-sponsored a great event last night at the Cornell Club in NY. We did this in conjunction with the NY chapter of GU’s GEMA program.
Matt Winkler, our Associate Dean of the program, moderated the event. The four panelists were Hoyas grads who hold executive positions in Sports and Media. They were Tim Brosnan of Major League Baseball, Rich Michel of Busch Media, Jim O’Connell of NASCAR and Molly Solomon from NBC Olympics.
The panelists were superb as they provided great insight about the hot topics in Sports in today’s environment. This was followed by a Q&A, then a networking reception.
Although the SIM program is only in its’ first year, we’re off to a superb start. I’ll be co-teaching a Sports Executive course this summer. I’m looking forward to it!
