Fox Sports University has partnered with 27 universities for 2014-2015, to provide real-world experience to graduate and undergraduate students, while bringing new ideas to Fox as well.
In the program, students and Fox Sports executives will work through real-world solutions, campaigns and products, which will be launched across Fox Sports businesses.
University of North Carolina, Indiana University, Auburn University and NYU, as well as more journalism and business schools, public relations and sports management programs have been involved in the individual projects, which address current business, technology, marketing or research challenges across a Fox Sports business.
Five full-time job placements with Fox Sports and over 30 internships have come forth through Fox Sports U. Student-run campaigns have also won Emmy, Telly, Addy, Golden Matrix and Promax awards throughout the program.
Fox Sports U was founded in 2008 with one school by Randy Freer, who is now President and COO of FOX Networks Group.
