1 The Importance of a Graduate Degree: Back to School after 12 years Ron Glenn is not the typical graduate student. He began the MBA in Sports Management program in Fall years after receiving his Bachelors in Mass Communication from the University of Georgia. Between undergraduate and graduate school, Ron worked in the Broadcast News industry. Despite full-time employment, Ron saw the importance of the MBA in Sport Management program at FAU: "I knew that in an ever-evolving world the only way to keep up is with education. After researching programs I wanted a program that was not only rigorous academically, but offered me an opportunity to gain real world experiences. FAU MBA in Sport Management was the only program that allowed me to step out of my comfort zone and move directly into the business of sports while getting an education." Ron s hard work is evident by his accomplishments. He was recently awarded the Business Leader of the Year Scholarship funded by Suffolk Construction. Graduate programs are an excellent opportunity to gain an edge on the competition in the job market. The MBA in Sport Management program at FAU requires that their students maintain internships or employment in the sport and entertainment industry throughout the entirety of the program. This allows students the opportunity to network with a variety of people in the industry, which can increase one s chances of post-graduate employment. The MBA in Sport Management program is an amazing opportunity for people like Ron who are ready for the challenge.

3 SPRING 2014 Page 3 AACSB Accreditation Why it matters Our Mission The College of Business is accredited by the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). This prestigious accreditation is recognized nationally and is one of 149 business schools worldwide, out of several thousand schools, to be fully accredited by AACSB through the doctoral level. Furthermore, it is the only business school to be accredited in its service area. In business, AACSB accreditation is the gold standard. Approximately 10% of business schools have this premiere accreditation. FAU is also accredited regionally by the Commission of Colleges of the Southern Association of Schools and Colleges. FAU is a member of the National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges and the Council of Graduate Students. Accreditation is a process for voluntary, nongovernmental review of educational institutions and programs. When choosing a business school, it is very important to consider its accreditation. Accreditation may affect your desirability in graduate programs, ability to transfer credits, the reputation of your degree, and your ability to compete in the job market. The mission of this program is the training and development of individuals who possess the ability to undertake and complete the rigors of a high quality graduate-level business program, for a career in the management and administration of the sport industry. The program IS NOT designed for those individuals interested in the career as a teacher, coach, exercise scientist, athletics trainer, or researcher. Practical application of learned classroom knowledge is required and will be attained through internship and practical experience during and after the students classroom tenure at FAU. Practical application of learned classroom knowledge is required through internship. A Message from the Director Since 2000, the MBA in Sport Management program at Florida Atlantic University has been training and educating future management and executive personnel in the areas of sport, entertainment, and public assembly management. Our model of constant interaction of classroom learning and hands-on industry experience has served the sport and entertainment industry well and has made our graduates quite attractive to potential employers. FAU MBA Sport is a difficult, demanding, strenuous and, at times, overwhelming program that is not for everyone. It is not a typical graduatelevel, Masters-degree program.
