Point Park University: Sports, Arts & Entertainment Management
Point Park’s SAEM program appealed to me because of the variety of courses I was able to take. When I started my freshman year, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with my life, but I knew I was interested in sports, theatre and music. By joining the SAEM program, I was able to learn about each area and see how the different industries have many similarities and how they interact with one another. All of the professors are great and have a huge amount of knowledge of the different industries. This really makes a difference.
The SAEM classes I took at Point Park have benefited me a lot in this industry. The venue and facilities management class I took really applies to the job I have now. There is a lot more that goes into a Broadway theatre than one might think. Since the professors work or have worked in the industries, learning from their experiences really made a difference. I believe that graduating from Point Park with an SAEM degree really sticks out on a resume because of the diverse background it offers to students.
I first started with Nederlander as an intern in the operations department. I got along with everyone at the office and impressed some house managers so they decided to create my current position as a floating associate house manager.
