Sport Management Student and Alumni Profiles

Sport management majors and alumni highly recommend both their program and the overall Fisher experience.

Some are student-athletes themselves, while others are sport aficionados or rabid fans. Still others approach athletics primarily from the business side. No matter how they came to the program, however, sport management students at Fisher agree that the College offers excellent training and preparation for success in the field.

Student Government Association (SGA) President Anthony Lee has one piece of advice for first-year students: get involved.

"Let yourself experience what the campus has to offer," he said. "Be sure to engage with students, faculty, and staff during programs or events. This engagement will not only help you become more involved in activities but involved in your academic career and most importantly, your overall college experience."

It's advice he's followed during his time at Fisher, where he has immersed himself in several student organizations, including SGA, the Teddi Dance for Love, and the varsity football team.

The Clifton Park, New York native has also dove into internship opportunities that have complemented his studies in sport management and finance. He spent time working with the College's Athletic Department as they hosted the 2016 NCAA Division III Men's Golf Championship tournament, and most recently, served as a corporate intern with the Fortune 500 company, Dick's Sporting Goods.

While he's not sure what career path he’ll embark on after graduation, he said his Fisher education, and the Sport Management Department in particular, have prepared him for the next step.

"What I love about the sport management program is the endless number of connections it has developed with professionals within the sport industry," he said. "This connection helps give students a diversity of experiences, helping us further understand the many careers available within the industry."

As a sport management graduate, Brandon Rosenthal learned very quickly about the power of relationships with people. He said thanks to relationships with his classmates, his basketball teammates, his professors, and people he met outside of Fisher, he was able to grow both personally and professionally.

After graduating from Fisher, Brandon went on to graduate school at St. Edward's University in Austin, Texas, part of his plan all along.

Today, he is the assistant coach for the Northern Arizona Suns. Previously, he served as the director of basketball operations with the Santa Clara University men’s team, an NCAA Division I program.

Brandon said he truly believes Fisher helped him prepare in the areas that were vital to his success in the business and collegiate world of sport.

"To me, the greatest advantage I had in going to Fisher was opportunity. Fisher does an amazing job in fostering relationships and providing students with opportunity both on and off campus. There is not a price tag you can put on the value of a Fisher education."
