More than 200 attendees interested in pursuing a career in the sports industry visited The Manhattanville School of Business’s 7th annual Sport Business Career Fair, Friday, Nov. 21. The event, held at Manhattanville College’s historic Reid Castle, brought together more than 30 industry experts and recruiters from the sports world.
Developed by the Manhattanville Sport Business Management degree program, the 7th annual sport career fair featured hiring managers from regional and national sports teams, league associations and agencies, including USTA, NBC Sports, ANC Sports, WFAN/WCBS, ESPN, Major League Soccer, NY Red Bulls, New York Cosmos, Hudson Valley Renegades, and Rockland Boulders, among many others.

Panelists Alyssa Adelson, Octagon; Miguel Zurita, NBC Sports; Marybeth Interdonato, USTA; and Mike Smith, NFL, shared key insights and tips with students looking to break into the field of sports business and management.
