Support the UConn Sport Business Conference

The UConn Sport Business Conference is a completely student-run event that was created by dedicated and driven members of the UConn Sport Business Association's Executive Board. The UConn SBC provides the motivated students in attendance with an unique opportunity to engage with successful professionals from a variety of career paths and areas of expertise within the sport industry. The conference is a full-day event and includes a keynote address, breakout workshop sessions into various sport management fields, plentiful networking time, as well as internship and job hunting opportunities.

The UConn SBC strives to help all attendees gain real-world knowledge and applicable skills that will give them a foundation to build upon when they complete their educational careers. The conference promotes relationship building between our mentors and attendees, providing an environment that serves as a building block for future professional connections and mentorship. Each year we are thrilled to welcome new students and professionals to our event, as well as returning attendees and mentors who have been and will continue to be part of our UConn Sport Business Conference Family.

Our Inaugural 2017 event was a great success. We had 152 registered students from nine universities across the Northeast, coming from 14 different states. Students in attendance had the opportunity to learn from professionals working with elite organizations such as ESPN, FOX Sports, the New York Mets, the Northeast Conference, and many more.

We cannot make an event like this possible and affordable for the attendees without the help from the generous contributions of our donors. Any contribution you are able to make is very much appreciated as we strive towards our goal of raising $2000. If we exceed our goal we will use additional funds for the conference in future years to improve the overall quality and alleviate some of the financial burden from students that are interested in attending. If we do not reach our goal funds, we will still do our best to go forward with the conference this year and the following years. This will be our second year of hosting the conference. It will be held on Saturday, January 27th, 2018. We hope to make this event better year after year.

With your support, we can help fuel the fire on campus.
