Finantial Aid

Many Sports MBA students from the United States take advantage of federal student loan programs offered through the FAFSA program. Further information on these programs is available through the SDSU Financial Aid Office homepage www.sdsu.edu/financialaid, Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), fafsa.ed.gov, and SmartStudent Guide to Financial Aid www.finaid.org.

Graduate Assistantships

Nearly all Sports MBA students take on a graduate assistantship during their time in San Diego. Classes typically meet 3-4 days per week, leaving significant time for interning, volunteering, and working outside the classroom. A small number of on-campus graduate assistantships are available per year, but most students choose to work with one of the many sports business organizations in San Diego for their assistantship experience. No specific scholarships are specifically awarded for the Sports MBA program.
