Are you seeking an internship or full-time job in sports?

Undergraduate students, graduate students, professionals or anyone looking to break into sports, The Sports Mind Institute is designed to help get you there.

How can these courses help me

SMI courses are designed to help you land a job in sports:

  • Learn from the personal stories of those who made it
  • Gain insights about how to navigate the sports landscape
  • Show a commitment to continued education
  • Enhance your resume with an SMI Certificate
  • Add to your library of sports knowledge
  • Be inspired by the people who have done what you want to do

Worried that the Medieval French Poetry course you took in college won’t help land you your dream job? Show potential employers that you’re serious about wanting to work in sports. Everyone, even George Costanza, wants to work in sports, but not enough people actually DO something about it and distinguish themselves from the pack.

Take the SMI courses, earn a Certificate, and prove that you’re serious about sports as a career.
