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 work experience and explore other countries through sport. Due to COVID-19 we are keeping upcoming travel domestic, traveling to the southern city of Atlanta, Georgia for TWO different Sport Business Programs. 
 
Our Sport Business 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. 
 
PROGRAM OVERVIEW:

SHORT-TERM PROGRAM WITH BIG RESULTS:
Our program extends either 2-weeks (Option #1) or 9 days/8 nights (Option #2) and includes a full itinerary to make the most of your time traveling with our team. 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.

PLACEMENT WORKING DIRECTLY WITH A PRO SPORTS TEAM:
Program Option #1: Living Sport is proud to announce a new partnership with Rugby ATL of Major League Rugby. With this collaboration, Living Sport and Rugby ATL have developed an immersive educational program providing an enhanced hands-on experience to young professionals aspiring to secure employment in the sport industry. 

Living Sport will seek to recruit the industry’s best and brightest to partake in this 2-week developmental camp that is scheduled to run June 13-27, 2021. Applicants will be vying for placement on three teams within Rugby ATL including Marketing, Ticket Sales, and Operations. Program participants will have involvement in day-to-day operations and will assist in executing 2 home rugby matches played at Life University (the “Snake Pit”). For additional information visit us at livingsport.com.
 
Program Option #2: Secure a spot to work three (3) days with the Gwinnett Stripers, Triple-A Affiliate of the Atlanta Braves MLB team! The current state of the sport industry is like we have never seen before. The exciting part about this partnership is our team will get 1-on-1 interaction with this MiLB team who is got creative this past year with holding all types of events to supplement for their lost baseball season. But baseball is back in 2021 and our Living Sport team will work alongside the Gwinnett Stripers staff as we learn directly from them what it takes to work on your toes in the sport industry! Living Sport program participants will attend multiple conference style presentations from the Stripers staff. For additional information visit us at livingsport.com.

GUIDED TOURS & ATTRACTIONS:
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.  

SKILLS WORKSHOPS LED BY INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS:
All group tours will be led by sport industry professionals. This allows us to conduct Skills Workshop sessions lead by executives that have years of experience and are willing to pass their knowledge along to you. During the Skills Workshop session, 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.

SPORT INDUSTRY NETWORKING:
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.
