  • A Partnership of Academics and Modern Business

    In April 2015 “The Center” was added to our campus here at Dean College, and with the addition comes numerous new opportunities for students that were previously unavailable to students. Think of your typical classroom. There’s four walls, a professor in the front of the classroom speaking to the students in rows and columns of desks. As a part of “The Center”, throw your idea of a classroom out the window. Students will learn in some of the more iconic stadiums in the area such as Gillette Stadium, McCoy Stadium, and the Dunkin’ Donuts Center. They’ll get the chance to learn valuable tips and tricks of the Communications trade from top executives in various sports organizations from across New England. 

    Each year, the number of partners with “The Center” increases. We are continuously trying to open up new opportunities for students with different companies and organizations in the area. Our students are the top priority and we care about forming relationships with organizations and companies in the area that will help our students gain valuable experience in the work force.

    Who You'll Work With

    Some of the academic, athletic and internship opportunities The Center for Business, Entertainment and Sport Management will provide our students, inside and outside of the classroom, will include:

    • Participation of Patriots and Revolution executives in the classroom.

    • Use of Gillette Stadium and other KSG facilities as a laboratory for learning.
