Co-ops & Internships, Management
We encourage our students to take advantage of our connections with industry partners to gain valuable real-world experience through an internship or co-op. We help our students find opportunities that suit their interests and enable them to explore the many career options available to a management major.
Students in each of our concentrations benefit from our location outside of a major metropolitan city, but our sport management students probably benefit most. They can pursue opportunities with all of the major Philadelphia sports teams with which we have established relationships. Many members of our Sport Management Advisory Board work for these teams and even co-teach or teach some of our courses, giving our students an “in” when it comes to landing an internship or co-op—often the first step in landing their dream job.
Hear from some of our recent Widener management students about their experiences in a co-op or internship.
Morgan Stewart, Marketing
My internship was with the Demand Planning Department at Crayola. During this experience
at Crayola, I had the opportunity to build reports in Oracle and collaborate with
the sales, operations, and marketing departments. I learned how marketing can build
sales and saw value in the degree I was working toward.
Philip DeHaven, Sport Management
I had the opportunity to do a one-credit internship with the Wells Fargo Center (Comcast Spectacor). In addition to supporting a number of events, including the Ringling Bros. Circus, Philadelphia Freedoms Tennis Team, and Philadelphia Wings Lacrosse, I learned a lot about the sport management business.
Casey Le Roi, Sport Management
I was one of the first Widener students hired by the Philadelphia Union. Upon graduation, I was hired as marketing manager for the team. I credit my internship with helping me land this job. It was an important piece of my career plan.
