“The KSS faculty at UNK provided me the tools and experiences I needed to successfully land my dream job in Sports Management right after graduation. Through comprehensive classes and hands-on training at a variety of UNK sporting events, I was able to carry what I learned into a position as a Sports Information Director at Duke University.”
