North Central Missouri College Business and Sport Management students traveled to Graceland University in Lamoni, Iowa on November 10th and got an in-depth look at the school’s Sport Management program. Eleven students attended the event which consisted of a campus tour and a student panel who discussed all aspects of the program plus the college in general.

In the last year, NCMC’s Business department has added an emphasis area in Sport Management. “We have seen an increase in student enrollment as well as an increase in student interest,” remarked CTE Division Chair Sarah Bird. She worked with the Sport Management Department Chair Donovan Nelson at Graceland to articulate NCMC’s degree to Graceland’s. This articulation agreement was signed in the fall of 2021 and will allow Sport Management students from NCMC to earn and transfer credit to Graceland’s Sport Management program. Business courses are also part of the articulation agreement.

Both programs offer students opportunities for internships in the area of Sport Management. Graceland has several students currently working for professional sports teams across the country. “It was exciting to learn about students working in careers that I would be very interested in after graduation. The internships their students were doing right now made me excited about finishing my studies,” commented Sterling DeSha, a current NCMC Sport Management student.
