The Michigan Sport Business Conference is the nation’s premier undergraduate-run sport business conference. It was developed in 2011 by a group of undergraduate students affiliated with both the Stephen M. Ross School of Business and School of Kinesiology at the University of Michigan. Our event attracts top sport executives to educate and develop the future business leaders of the world.
The MSBC started from a simple saying: “The Michigan Difference;” the idea that we have the competitive resources and capabilities to push the limit on what is possible in any realm. This same idea is what drives the MSBC’s ability to continue developing invaluable experiences that inspire creativity and innovation in the sport industry and allow individuals to build the relationships necessary to achieve their professional aspirations. We achieve this by connecting current and future sport business professionals and organizations through thought-provoking educational platforms and effective relationship-building opportunities.
While we do host a sport business conference, we pride ourselves on doing much more than that. We are a networking platform specifically designed for undergraduate students who intend to pursue professional opportunities in the sport industry.
In order to further our status as a networking platform, we aim to provide students with sustainable connections in the industry that develop into further partnerships. Because MSBC values career development, our main objectives are for students to obtain jobs and internships or make invaluable relationships within the industry. The success of MSBC can be measured by the people that pass through the organization and ultimately become successful within their careers.
