In September 2018, the Howard University Sports and Entertainment (HUSE) Council held the very first Sports and Entertainment Summit right here in the School of Business. The School of Business has been historically successful at providing diverse opportunities to its students and the Inaugural Sports and Entertainment Summit serves as an extension. It is apparent that the sports and entertainment industry is constantly growing, and its development around the world calls for a plethora of new careers for business students.
Not solely limited to Howard University students, the Sports and Entertainment Summit catered to students from various universities such as New York University, University of Richmond, Hampton University and more. The summit touched on key topics prevalent in the industry such as gender equality, activism, and the challenge of simply being a black professional in the field.
