Testimonial: “The MSBC was an amazing success. What this group of students pulled together for a first-time event was nothing short of extraordinary! The conference brought together top sports media & marketing executives from across the country to Ann Arbor to offer career advice, insights and industry trends for the current students and recent grads in the sports marketing world. Additionally, the event provided a great opportunity for the many Michigan alums, like myself, working in the media & sports marketing industry to come back to campus and network with students and other Wolverines, which is really what the power of the Michigan network is all about.”
