Elizabeth Byrd: So right out of high school, I wanted to be sideline commentator in the NFL. I wanted to do all of that, but I was told in 1987, I was a girl. I could not do that. I wanted to practice in the area of sport and entertainment law. Specifically, I want to be an agent. I want to negotiate contracts. I want to represent athletes. I’ve always wanted to do that. Never thought it was a possibility.
And then, I became a single mom, raised a son with special needs. And then I started dating my now husband. And he’s like, “Why don’t you do it?” And it was that, why don’t I? And so I started looking around, and Concordia was actually the last one looked at, and it was like, wow, they have this adult accelerated online program. I can make this fit into my life.
Reaching out, everyone at Concordia has been fabulous. You reach out to… They want you to succeed. And then just the discussion boards, the projects have all been great. They really get you thinking outside the box. The online experience is really good. It’s been great. And the sports management program has really given me a lot of different options to where I can go with it.
Oh, it’s going to really help me. But there’s so many things out fall within that sport management title, the fundraising, the marketing, the planning and managing the sport facility, the risk assessment, the biomechanics, the walking around looking at all the facilities. To me, it’s important because I want to be hands on. I don’t want to farm out the negotiations, the contracts. Those connections to me have been invaluable.
Do it. Do it. If you have anything inside you, anything is pulling you towards getting your education, it is so valuable. Especially the sports management program, pullup what the core classes are. You can look right online, on Concordia’s website. It was very empowering to find Concordia and this online program that said, “You can do this, and it can work in your life.”
