The sports industry is brimming with incredible career opportunities, and we are here to help guide you through it.

How do I join the RSBA?

As a first year student, you’ll have access to the Club’s Fair in late August. Come find the RSBA booth and you’ll be able to sign up right away. We’ll provide with all the details you need to know about joining the club and the membership fees. For second year students, send us an email and we will be able to manually add you.

Who is in the RSBA?

RSBA is composed of students at the Rotman School of Management, whether that be in the Full-Time or Part-Time program. It is run entirely by the students on our Executive Committee.

How can I get involved?

You can get involved firstly by joining the club! If you want to do more, as a 1st year you can apply to be a section rep which means you’ll get to meet with the Executive Committee every few weeks and then relay important information back to your section. You can also email the club and let us know you’d like to help out at events, and we’ll be sure to get you involved.

Will there be fantasy drafts?

Yes! Put on your general manager hats and build your own team to compete in our very own RSBA fantasy leagues!

I’d like to meet your members or speak at an event!

If you are looking to speak to members of the RSBA or would be interested in speaking at one of our events (and your career is within the Sports Business industry), then please contact us and we would be happy to discuss things further with you.
