Internship Opportunities in Sports

Are you an undergraduate or graduate student with a sports management background (emphasis on business) looking to hone your skills in a real world setting providing nonprofit organizations with programmatic support?

NCYS has entered into a relationship with the University of New Haven (UNH) to provide student interns to help any of our members with any personnel needs they might have. Whether for individual projects or to work an entire summer or semester, UNH has over 100 undergraduate and 40 graduate students interested in helping non-profit sport organizations.

UNH has a well regarded sport management program housed in their College of Business. Students are well trained in finance, accounting, marketing, risk management, and event management. All students are required to participate in at least one 200 hour internship, which can be undertaken anywhere in the world. Internships could be paid or unpaid, but if you need a student to move or to hire the most experienced student they often are looking for a paid internship.

If you have any projects that might need the assistance of a willing intern, contact UNH Professor Gil Fried for additional assistance. His contact information is (203) 932-7081 and gfried@newhaven.edu. For additional information you may also contact National Council of Youth Sports at 772-781-1452 or youthsports@ncys.org.
