Careers in Sports & Entertainment Dinner Series

To bring context to the classroom experience and show how that learning can apply to career opportunities in the field of sports and entertainment, Iona College and the Hagan School of Business are pleased to host its fourth year of Careers in Sports and Entertainment Dinner Series.

This is a private event for members of the Iona community (students with a declared commitment, faculty, alumni, and administrators) who are interested in the business of sports and entertainment and potential career advancement opportunities. Each event features accomplished industry professionals in a 60-minute informal discussion, where they will share:

  • personal reflections on their career path and influences;
  • insights on current industry challenges and its future; and
  • advice on career planning, advancement and opportunities.

In addition, there will be announcements on industry internship and trainee programs that are in development with assistance from the Gerri Ripp Center for Career Development. These opportunities range from traditional summer internships to paid trainee programs.

This series is as much about sharing industry insights as it is about finding a career that best suits your skills and desires in the challenging world of the sports and entertainment business.

You will be treated to a light dinner and the opportunity to mingle with the featured speakers, moderator, faculty, and administrators before and after the discussion.
