    I was browzing the web earlier this evening and I stumbled upon this website, http://www.sportsmanagementworldwide.com/index.asp

    I wasn't sure if any of you have ever looked or taken a course with the website. It appears to be very aspiring and I was almost considering it myself.
     
  2. You haven't heard the Mel Kiper Jr. radio commercial?

    It's comical, and he repeats the Web address 2323948735 times.

    And it goes something like, "S-M-Dubya-Dubya dot com." I think Bush paid him to pronounce it like that.

    You'll need that course if you want to run a bait shop.

    for those that made the jump from journalism to the world of p.r. (sports or otherwise) is it worth taking classes in public relations at a real university (be it online courses or classroom courses)?

    I just finished a course on case studies in PR and didn't learn anything. Real PR isn't taught anymore, it's all about marketing.

    I was considering taking some PR courses or even going back after I completed my English degree to complete a degree in communications, but I figure everything you learn from journalism can be translated over towards a career in public relations. I figure after some years in journalism, I'd like to grab a Masters in Business Administration or Sports Management. Possibly then a career in persuing my dream for working for a baseball team can be furfilled or simply doing PR for the sport of baseball.
