  • A Partnership of Academics and Modern Business

    When the quarterback scores the winning touchdown after his team clears his path. When the singer nails her signature high note after the orchestra builds the perfect crescendo. People succeed when great teams come together to pursue a common goal. 

    In this spirit, The Center for Business, Entertainment and Sport Management (The Center) has forged strategic partnerships with giants in the multi-billion dollar sports and entertainment industries, like the Kraft Sports Group and the Pawtucket Red Sox. Through these relationships, we are uniquely poised to give our students one-of-a-kind opportunities to get ahead in a variety of competitive fields.

    Some of your classrooms will have four walls and a door. Others, though, will have ticket booths and box seats, video boards and training rooms. By combining our dynamic curriculum with unprecedented hands-on experience, you can take what you learn in the classroom and put it to work in a fast-paced, cutting-edge marketplace. We have joined forces to help you succeed.
