Inside the Program

Sport management student lands NFL internship

Tommy Rudawsky's time as manager for the Shocker men's basketball team gave him the skills and confidence to apply for -- and eventually land -- a coveted summer internship with the Minnesota Vikings.

He didn't stop there. Rudawsky was then offered a semester-long internship at the University of Arkansas. It won't be easy, but Rudawsky hopes these experiences will help him with his ultimate goal of becoming an NFL general manager.


To complete the 12-credit-hour minor, you'll first take Critical Sport Studies. Then, you'll select three more courses based on your interests and career goals.


A degree from Wichita State opens doors to employment in diverse sectors of the sport industry. Our alumni are employed in Kansas, across the nation and internationally—with local schools, universities, health clubs, minor-league and professional league sport organizations.
