2016 LASEC Professional Development Program students

The Los Angeles Sports & Entertainment Commission’s Professional Development Program (PDP) offers college students the opportunity to learn more about the sports business and the skills needed to land a job in the industry. Students in this program work with LASEC’s team to improve their resumes, practice their interview skills and learn from a variety of sports industry professionals. Students gain event experience working on an LASEC-hosted event (Dodgers All-Access or NFL All-Access) and help generate marketing and promotional ideas for a major event LASEC has secured for Los Angeles (i.e. Breeders’ Cup, NBA All-Star Weekend).
