Internships

Our intern program for college and local high school students is the perfect opportunity for those interested in sports management to get a taste of all aspects of the sports industry. Through our internships, we are able to provide an exposure to all aspects of game day and media operations, enhancing what our students have already learned within the classroom. With so many of our interns describing their experience as a Bird Intern as the ‘best summer of their lives’, it’s no wonder that so many of them go on to every level of sports industry in every league. Our interns are guaranteed to not only receive college credit for their time and efforts, but gain firsthand experience that can later be applied to their careers.
