The sports and entertainment industry continues to evolve through new technology and multi-faceted media companies. The long-ago era of three television networks, rotary phones, newspapers and terrestrial radio as primary sources of information and entertainment has given way to personalized content via satellite communications and digital technology. From property development and event management to content distribution and media sales, consumers and business executives are immersed in sports and entertainment more so than ever before.
At the heart of this evolution are exciting career opportunities in sports and entertainment media, sales and marketing and management. Arguably, New York City is the sports and entertainment capital of the world, playing host to many global-reaching properties, marketing campaigns, media entities and world-class sports and entertainment venues. With such a close proximity, Iona College is in the backyard of this fertile ground and has the unique opportunity to feature sports and entertainment as part of its' mission integration.
