(4)

The George Washington University Sports Business Association is a student organization committed to connecting GW students with the sports industry. The organization falls under the School of Business and resulted from the rebranding of the former Sports Marketing Association. Though the primary responsibility of the organization was originally to aid in the marketing and execution of the annual Sports Industry Networking and Career Conference (SINC), the group has evolved and now incorporates many more aspects of the industry and student life into its annual affairs. SBA is made up of both undergraduate students interested in the field of sports as well as graduate students pursuing their Sport Management MBAs from GW. The organization works to promote the Sport Management program at the university and to get students engaged and informed about one of the world's most exciting and largest industries. Their activities and events throughout the year include: ---Tabling at student organization fairs to promote the group and educate incoming students about the program ---The annual Sport Industry Networking and Career Conference (SINC) and the annual New York Career Trek ---Panels, site-visits, workshops, roundtables, and various other networking events ---Social activities such as fantasy leagues, outings to local sporting events, and watch-parties for major sporting events

Mission: The GW Sports Business Association is a student organization, for both undergrad and grad students, which promotes the GW Sport Management program and creates opportunities for students to engage with the sports industry.
