M.S. in Sport Venue & Event Management information session to be held Oct. 19
Syracuse University faculty and staff will welcome potential graduate students interested in the Falk College’s newest graduate program—the M.S. in sport venue and event management—during a special Fall Information Session on Friday, Oct. 19. Parking is available in the Irving Avenue garage across from the Carrier Dome. The event begins with a 2 p.m. presentation in Heroy Auditorium and continues with a behind-the-scenes tour of the Carrier Dome.
In response to a strong career outlook in the fields of facility and event management and a growing need for professionals trained specifically in this area, this new interdisciplinary master of science degree in sport venue and event management is currently enrolling students for Summer 2013. The academic program includes faculty from the Falk College’s Department of Sport Management, as well as elective courses from SU’s School of Information Studies (iSchool), S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications and the Martin J. Whitman School of Management. Unlike any other master’s
program, this 36-credit hour graduate degree is focused on educational knowledge and skill development, leveraging experiential opportunities in the SU Carrier Dome, the only multi-purpose domed sports facility on a college campus.
Sport management faculty and admissions staff will be available at the Oct. 19 information session to meet with prospective students and provide detailed information on this new program, as well as scholarships and housing. RSVPs are encouraged by Oct. 8. Individuals who RSVP by this date will be eligible to win tickets to the SU-UConn football game at the Carrier Dome on the evening of the 19th.
