Taylor Bynoe, Sports Management & Marketing

Roberts was my first choice because of the 1 on 1 opportunities with faculty that are available to me. From the very beginning, it was clear that they truly care about preparing you for your future.  I always wanted to be a part of the business department but when Sports Management was added to the program, my dreams came true. I’ve been an athlete my entire life and wanted to pursue a career in collegiate or high school athletics. I really enjoyed my class “Emerging Issues In Sports” where we were given the opportunity to listen to different speakers who worked in various fields of Sports Management. It helped to shape my career path and allowed me to pursue my passion for college athletics! The challenging yet engaging curriculum, along with my internship, have prepared me for any future endeavors in this field that I may embark on. I would recommend the Roberts Business program to anyone looking to get quality instruction, meaningful experience and lifelong community on their way to pursuing their dreams. Go Roberts!
