International Sport Business Program – Athens, Greece 
Sunday, June 21st – Wednesday, July 1st, 2020
10 Days/9 Night Study Abroad Experience
Enrollment is currently open– Apply early as space is limited
Do you want to work in sports? Would you like to travel abroad? How about working an international sporting event? If you answered yes to those questions, Living Sport’s International Sport Business Program may be for you!
Living Sport's International Sport Business (ISB) Program was created to give passionate sport professionals, recent graduates, and current students an edge over the thousands of job seekers looking to score a gig in sports. Stemming from the popularity of edutainment experiences, Living Sport gives young adults the chance to receive international work experience and explore other countries through sport.
The ISB Program is led by industry professionals who have immense experience in the sport industry and mentoring young professionals. Program participants will interact with sports business professionals creating a lasting network that extends far beyond the program. Our team is made up of passionate students and young professionals from all over North America.
Our program extends 9 days/8 nights and includes a full itinerary to make the most of your time traveling abroad. Our short-term program was designed this way for a purpose. We believe it gives us enough time to accomplish what we set out to do, and creates a cost-effective program allowing all deserving participants to get involved.

Secure a spot on the staff of Oceanman Greece, the only international open-water swimming competition for elite and amateur swimmers. Oceanman is an event like nothing you've experienced before. Held in more than 35 different countries spanning all seven continents, the events attract nearly 1,000 swimmers and are comprised of multiple styles of races spanning different lengths. Oceanman Greece, set in the picturesque bay of Oitylo in the heart of Mani, will include the 10KM Oceanman race (individual), 3 x 500M Oceanteam race (relay), 500M Oceankids race, 2KM Sprint and 5KM Half. Wetsuits are not allowed in the race, however the ocean temperature is predicted at a warm 22 °C (72 °F) for the event. While the races are very competitive, the Oceanman atmosphere is always festive and showcases a display of great comradeship.
The Living Sport team will work alongside the Oceanman staff as we learn directly from them what it takes to pull off an event of this magnitude. From event setup to event execution to cleanup, you will receive a once-in-a-life time event experience while joining the Living Sport Athens team.
Our program includes studying and touring the local area sports teams and stadiums in each city visited. Special accommodations will be developed specifically for our group giving us an incredible learning experience at each sport destination visited. 

Included in Itinerary: 
  • Tour Olympic venues such as Spyros Louis Olympic Stadium, Athens Olympic Aquatic Center, Hellinikon Olympic Arena & more
  • Travel to Ancient Olympia, home to the first Olympic Games and site of where the Olympic flame is lit each Olympic year 
  • Tour Karaiskakis Stadium, home to Olympiacos F.C.

Experiencing the culture of each city we visit is a very important part of personal growth and of our program. Local group excursions will be included in the overall itinerary. You will experience tours of local landmarks, taste test local cuisine, and take in much of what each city is known for.  

Included Itinerary: 
  • Guided Tours and Attractions – The Panathenaic Stadium, Parthenon, Acropolis, Limeni Village, and more!

All group tours will be led by sport industry professionals. This allows us to conduct a Skills Workshop session lead by executives that have years of experience and are willing to pass their knowledge along to you. During the Skills Workshop, we will direct you on how to best list this experience on your resume, tips for an effective interview, best practices for a career in sports, etc. Having direct access to professionals gives you the chance to ask questions and develop a relationship with them all week-long.

Networking is a key aspect of any business, but it especially stands true for the sport industry. During this program you will meet industry professionals and fellow participants that are the future of sport business. This is a true networking opportunity for you and a way to form important business relationships.
