MSSM Student Credits Program for Helping Secure Her Dream Job
Kacy Eschweiler has had a love for athletics since she can remember. Growing up, she loved playing basketball and watching the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team. Kacy turned her love for sports into a college career as a member of the women's basketball team for the University of Southern Indiana starting in 2015. During her time as a student-athlete at USI, she studied sport management and marketing. Kacy's dream of working for a major sports team has become a reality.
Upon completion of her Bachelor of Science degree in sport management in 2019, Eschweiler decided to pursue her master's degree. She has enrolled in USI's 100% online Master of Science in Sport Management. Kacy expressed her gratitude towards the MSSM program and faculty when we spoke with her about her experiences within the program.
"The MSSM program was the right choice for me because I knew it would set me on the right path for my career goals and the faculty would help me with whatever steps necessary to reach them. Being online, the program works well with my busy and unpredictable schedule," Kacy explained.
Without the online MSSM from USI, I would not feel as prepared entering this career opportunity as I do now.
With the flexibility of a 100% online program, Eschweiler was able to receive and accept a career offer to be an Inside Sales Representative from the Colorado Avalanche Ice Hockey Team based in Denver, Colorado. Eschweiler proclaimed, "without the online MSSM from USI, I would not feel as prepared entering this career opportunity as I do now. The program not only advances your education, but truly prepares you for a career in the sport field. It is constructive, supportive, and accessible."
Kacy also values how the MSSM faculty develop relationships with students. "I feel that even years down the line, I could reach out to the faculty and they would be willing to help me. I have developed relationships with many of my professors and feel comfortable going to them for future advice regarding my career path."
Eschweiler knows this is only the beginning for her. She plans to move to Denver, Colorado and begin her career in the sport management industry, acknowledging her gratefulness to the MSSM program and University of Southern Indiana.
We want to thank Kacy Eschweiler for her kind words toward the University of Southern Indiana and the Master of Science in Sport Management and wish her the best of luck with her future endeavors.
