“Get out and talk to people. Understand your own brand. Be humble, be genuine, and be curious.”

These statements all sound like great advice for anyone’s life, but they’re specifically a recipe for success in the Sport Management industry, according to CSULB alum Emma Heeger. Having just graduated this past June from the Master of Arts in Kinesiology (Option in Sport Management) program, Heeger has already implemented these lessons from instructors and industry professionals, scoring plenty of opportunities in the process.
