The Sport Management Program, founded by Herb Appenzeller, at Guilford College was one of the first in the nation. Greensboro is known as “Tournament Town” due to the numerous local, regional, and national athletic events and tournaments hosted. Sport management students have interned locally with organizations such as the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC), Greensboro Coliseum and Aquatics Center, Greensboro Sports Commission, two MLB teams, and four NCAA Division I athletic teams. Greensboro offers unique opportunities outside of its metropolitan area due to its close proximity to Charlotte (80 miles) and Triangle region (Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill – 80 miles).
