UC NISS and the Sports Science Department of George Mason University (GMU) have a great partnership with each university playing host to student exchanges. We spent a whole day at GMU with Professor Robert Baker and Professor Craig Escherik. Both professors were impressed with the enthusiasm and knowledge of our students and how well they presented themselves as a group. Discussions focussed on the collegiate system of sport, player recruitment and scouting, sponsorship and the media. It was also pleasing to hear how closely aligned the sport management degrees run by UC and GMU are which makes it an easy exchange option for interested students.
