Students travel to Beijing for 'Managing Mega Sport Events' course
Sport management students recently returned from an intensive three-week May term course which took place in Beijing, China. Rayla Allison, J.D., associate director and lecturer in the School of Kinesiology, taught the course, Managing Mega Sport Events, at Beijing Sport University (BSU). Students who seized this international opportunity learned about managing large sporting events in and out of the classroom. They also toured incredible Olympic venues such as, Beijing National Stadium and Olympic Green Tennis Centre. Aside from academics, students were able to experience historic Chinese cultural sites and adventure to the Great Wall, Summer Palace, Forbidden Palace, and Ming Tombs.
BSU partners with the School of Kinesiolgy on a student exchange agreement where students from BSU study full-time for one academic year in CEHD. In turn, kinesiology students travel to Beijing for a summer course.
