Student Success: Abigail Garcia, NYU Grad Student

Fundamentals of Global Sports Management Graduate. NYU Grad School Candidate. Achiever.

Wanting to get ahead of the game, Abigail applied to the Fundamentals of Global Sports Management online course to prepare for graduate school. She completed this course to bolster her application and get accepted into a Master's program. Today, she is a full-time graduate student at NYU's Sports Business program.

I enrolled at my top choice program and found the workload and curriculum easier thanks to this course and its content.

ON CHOOSING FUNDAMENTALS OF GLOBAL SPORTS MANAGEMENT —

I wanted to prepare for a full-time graduate program in sports management. The online course offered an introductory look into sports management. Since I was already applying to NYU's formal graduate program in sports business, it greatly influenced my decision to take the course. I was applying to traditional graduate programs in the field, but I wanted to bolster my application and learn about NYU's approach to sports business. TeamWork Online also hosts jobs for the sports properties I have worked with and want to work with in the future. The partnership with them added incredible practical value to the course.

ON BEING A YELLOWBRICK STUDENT —

My favorite part of the course was the Marketing module and the Barclays Activation assignment. This assignment offered the most valuable experience. It generated practical engagement with a sports property and an entertainment venue to create a professional, polished sponsorship proposal.

ON REAL-LIFE APPLICATION —

The course added a solid line for my academic and professional resumes. Moreover, it helped with admissions into a formal Master in Sport Management program. In addition, the knowledge and experience gained through the course helped me excel in a traditional graduate program. It also helped land contractual and part-time work with sports properties and startups across the country. I ultimately received admission into NYU's MS in Sports Business program and credit this course with helping me do so.

ON THE PAST & WHAT'S NEXT —

Completing this online course helped me receive admissions into every graduate program I applied to. As a result, I enrolled at my top choice program and found the workload and curriculum easier thanks to this course and its content.
