Our purpose of the Sport Management Association organization here at Winthrop is to assist in obtaining the necessary skills and experiences in order to create networking opportunities for students within the sport industry. The Sport Management Association (SMA) is a student organization in the PESH department. While the organization is dedicated to increasing networking opportunities and advancement of Sport Management majors, membership is open to all students who are interested in obtaining a job or internship in sports. Elected officers will lead the SMA and direct all activities. During each school year, the SMA will plan events devoted to the further advancement of knowledge in the sport management industry and participate in community service projects. Additionally, the SMA attempts to provide networking opportunities within the sport industry and the broader field called sport management.
