MBU sport management majors joined peers from around the country this past week at the 2022 Football Career Conference.
The conference, hosted by Sports Management Worldwide (SMWW), provides opportunities for growing professionals to connect with leaders in the field and receive career guidance from NFL executives.
Each MBU student received a $400, scholarship from the SMWW to attend their NFL Combine Football Career Conference.
“We are truly grateful to Sports Management Worldwide for providing the opportunity for our students to attend the 2022 Football Career Conference during the NFL Combine. Our students were provided real-world experience in running a large event through creating social media content, live-streaming, conducting interviews, photography and tech responsibilities,” said Guy Danhoff, assistant professor at MBU.
The ten MBU students selected to attend the conference also were able to attend the 2022 NLF Scouting Combine at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. More than 300 top college football players eligible for the upcoming NFL draft participated in the event.
The annual conference began on March 3 and ended on March 5.
