What is sports management?
What does a sports management major do?
What is the Sports Management Club about?
These are all questions that Morgan Galluzzo the President of the Wilkes Sports Management Club is asked quite often.
“The Sports Management Club is the equivalent of clinical to a nursing major. It will help sports management majors get the experience they need in their field of work, so that they can succeed in the business world,” Galluzzo said.
The Sports Management Club is a new club this semester and is looking to expand and help all sports management and business majors perfect their craft and hopefully open new doors to students at Wilkes.
With the help of Business Professor WooJun Lee the Sports Management Club was born and is now growing in size and it looking to make great leaps forward as a whole. Lee was the one who noticed that all of the other majors on campus had some sort of club to help students get hands on with their majors and Sports Management didn’t. So with some great ideas from Galluzo, the Sports Management Club was established. Professor Lee’s first course of action as the clubs advisor was then elected Morgan to be the president of the club due to all the ideas and plans that she had for the club going forward.
“It is very hard for Sports Management majors to understand what they want to do without the experience. We will get the experience that we need through the sports management club. This will help the students find the field or area of sports management that they will want to work in,” Galluzo said.
The Sports Management Club is looking to take trips to some professional sports teams around the area so the students can get hands on and a first hand look on how the business world and sports work. Lee has already taken some of the sports management classes to the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Rail Riders front office and to tour their facilities.
This is the type of experience that was missing that the Sports Management Club will now be giving students so they have an opportunity to get their feet wet before going out into the business world.
“We have a lot of amazing things going on and this will hopefully carry over into next years, we have very high hopes for this club to succeed and open doors for many people including myself. We have a lot of great people in the club and are led by a brilliant professor who is leading us into the right direction.
“The sky’s the limit and we can only go up from here,” said Morgan Galluzzo.
