CTEC Interns Gain Real Life Experience: Marketing

Apr 01, 2015


The CTE Center offers many specialized classes available to Frisco Juniors and Seniors, one being Sports Management.  The Sports Management course introduces students to the industry, specifically ticket sales, customer relationship management, media, sponsorships and corporate sales, in which students learn something new every six weeks.

A big aspect of this class is internships where we learn first-hand the aspects involved in sports management. Each student is assigned an internship to work at during the school year. During the internship, Mrs. Anderson the Sports Management teacher here at the CTE, will send our supervisor what we are learning in class during the six week grading period. Our supervisor will then apply what we are learning in class into our internship. This class is a great way to understand the true hands-on fundamentals of working in the field of Sports Management. In addition to the internship portion of the Sports Management class, we also have class work. Each week students are responsible for completing a chapter assignment and key terms for the week. In addition, we are to respond to a current sporting event.

Marketing Dynamics is a class that will make you decide how you will differentiate your school life from work life. You will learn what to do and what not to do as far as obtaining and keeping a job. You also have the opportunity to be involved in ourstudent organization, DECA. This organization teaches us more about marketing, hospitality, business and finance. We also participate in many community service and social activities as well as compete in competitions. I am a DECA officer and will be competing this year. One of the things that I love the most is the fact that I am able to meet many different people at competition.
