FRANKLIN, Mass. (April 22, 2015) – The Kraft Sports Group, the holding company for the New England Patriots and New England Revolution, announced today they have finalized an exclusive academic partnership with Dean College to create The Center for Business, Entertainment and Sport Management; establishing numerous opportunities for students to gain insight from Patriots and Revolution executives.
“Our organization is proud to expand our relationship with
Dean College,” said Murray Kohl, vice president of corporate sales for the New
England Patriots. “We look forward to offering Dean students new opportunities
to gain real-world exposure in the sports, business and entertainment industries
through this new venture.”
The agreement is an enhancement to an existing relationship
between the two organizations that has been in place since 2009. This relationship will strengthen the synergy
of the two parties through the direct involvement of Patriots and Revolution
executives, who will participate with members of the Dean Faculty in classroom
activities for programs Dean College offers. Programs include: Arts and
Entertainment Management, Business, Media Studies and Communications, Security
Management, Sport Management and Sports and Fitness Studies.
The partnership also includes the introduction of a
scholarship program, stadium and event management programs and the development
of a formalized internship program where Dean College students will have the
opportunity to work in various areas within the organization.
“We are honored to be so closely tied with organizations as
successful and recognizable as the New England Patriots and the New England
Revolution,” said Dean College President Dr. Paula M. Rooney. “From venue
management and coaching to marketing and business, the opportunity for our
students to learn from the leaders of such respected enterprises is exciting
for our students.”
Teaching in collaboration with the Dean Faculty and
internships are also a part of the arrangement.
Members of the Kraft Sports Group’s staff will provide insight and analysis
on their area of expertise both on the Dean College campus in Franklin, Mass.
and at the team’s Gillette Stadium headquarters in Foxborough, Mass. Personnel
from multiple areas within the organization will lecture and oversee the

“To succeed today, college students need as many contacts
and real-world exposure as possible,” said Dr. Michael Fishbein, vice president
of academic affairs. “By working directly with the Patriots and the Revolution,
and having their leadership team so closely intertwined with ours, we feel this
sets our academic programs apart and drives the experiential learning that is
so critical. Our students will be more
prepared, have more relevant experiences and a more valuable degree as a result
of this partnership.”
In addition, Dean College student-athletes will have the
opportunity to utilize training facilities and access various strength,
conditioning and nutrition programs through the Patriots and Revolution organizations. This invaluable benefit provides Dean coaches’
and players access to state-of-the-art equipment and direct contact with
training staffs consistently recognized among their respective league leaders.
“The Kraft Sports Group is a true business leader and we are
proud that they have chosen Dean College to be their exclusive academic
partner. It says a lot about our institution and where we are going,” said Dr.
