Mentorship Program

One of the signature elements of the Rutgers Global Sports Business (GSB) program is the personalized attention each student will receive. Apart from the influence of the GSB directors, professors in the classroom and managers in the executive training program, every master's candidate will be mentored by accomplished executives from all areas of the sports industry. These mentors will work with the students from the time they enter the program and chosen based on each candidate's interests and career goals.
