What drew you to this program?
The program's global reputation as the best platform to pursue a career in the Sport Industry. As well as the research areas of the faculty, the extensive alumni network and the Grad Mentor program are very exciting elements of the program. Most importantly, Professor McKelvey's persistent advice, support and guidance helped me choose UMass over the other competing programmes like Columbia; he was fundamental to my decision making process by explaining me the advantages UMass has over the other schools.
