Kassidy Kozai Student | Class of 2016
The Sport Management program has opened my mind beyond anything I imagined. The most valuable lesson I have learned, and practice, is the power of networking. By utilizing skills and tools provided by professors, I embrace every opportunity with confidence and strong business insight--and have made invaluable connections.
Darrell Stewart Student | Class of 2016
After living in Brazil for several years I started the graduate program in Southern California. Midway through the first year I was offered a full-time job in San Francisco. Because the same curriculum is offered in both locations, I was able to transfer without trouble. It's great to have such a strong support system to accommodate students at both campuses!
Maurita Toler Student | Class of 2016
I moved across the country from Boston to join USF's program in Southern California. The initial nervousness and feeling of being far away from home quickly disappeared as faculty, staff and awesome classmates became my second family. Countless opportunities to network and gain industry experience has made it all worthwhile.
