The University of Oregon has awarded the Warsaw Sports Marketing Center with a development grant and final program approval to create a new undergraduate study abroad opportunity. Partnering with Arsenal FC (Football Club) and the University of Massachusetts Amherst, this study abroad program will focus on international sports business and sustainability.
This opportunity is built on the tremendous success of the now annual Sports Business Global Studies program in Germany and the Netherlands. Undergraduate program manager and instructor of marketing Josh Gordon will travel to London this June to refine the specifics around summer 2018 programming.
The program is designed to allow access to study abroad opportunities earlier in students’ academic careers, enabling them to gain important core competencies through an immersive international experience. In addition to six credits of coursework, participants will have access to Arsenal FC staff and engage deeply with the London sports business industry.
London-based Warsaw alumni, friends, or family are welcome to contact Josh Gordon with their thoughts and site visit suggestions in support of this program. We love seeing our Ducks abroad.
