Global Experiences

Students in the Global Sport Leadership program take what they have learned in the classroom to the real world through a study abroad field experience. This amazing opportunity provides students the opportunity to travel abroad and interact with leaders in the field of sport in multiple cities and countries.  The specific itinerary for each year is custom designed to provide students with a once in a lifetime opportunity to immerse in the culture of another country. 

Once students register for this course, the only remaining expense is an airline ticket to the first city.  All accommodations, travel in country and event tickets are provided by the Global Sport Leadership program.  This ten-day trip occurs in the May term of the first and second year. 

Examples of experiences:

  • Playoff basketball game at Bayern Munich
  • Hamburg FC at Augsburg FC
  • Dachau Concentration Camp Tour
  • PSV Eindoven Operations and Tour
  • Economic impact of the Barcelona Olympics
  • Bid preparation for the Torino Olympics
  • Communication through sport practicum
