COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Six sport management students traveled to South Carolina recently to attend the Sport Entertainment & Venues Tomorrow Conference and participate in the fourth annual Sport Marketing Case Competition.
Sport management (SPMT) is a concentration in the division of Kinesiology and Sport Science at USD. SPMT funded this trip to give students a chance to gain real life experience and insight to use in their future careers.
The conference allowed students to attend sport industry panels and academic research presentations. The students also had the opportunity to network with representatives from the sport management and entertainment industries.
Fred Beaugard, Dillon Jemmott, Khorey Kilgore, Austin Klinghagen, Ravan Kott and Abbie Mitchell presented their case study among other schools, including Ohio University and the University of South Carolina.
