I have built a career over the last twelve years in athletic administration and understand the importance athletics can play in Higher Education. This program and the content of the courses, will allow for me to take what I know about leadership and athletic administration and apply these principles to global sports leadership. The world of sport extends beyond the United States and I feel certain this program will help me achieve my academic goals while providing an opportunity to explore sports from a worldwide perspective.
