The MSU Sport Management Program and the Northwoods League began partnering in the fall of 2010 to give students the opportunity to complete class projects that have a practical use for an actual sports organization.
Already, these projects have benefited the Northwoods League Foundation and its inaugural Celebrity Poker Tournament, Northwoods League Fantasy Baseball, and given individual students opportunities to audition for internships and future jobs.
