Practical experience is crucial. It is often an important requirement used by employers when interviewing and selecting applicants. At the University of Bayreuth, in particular the Department of Sport Science, gives students a range of opportunities to meet this requirement.
For example, students of Sport, Business & Law ("Spökos" for short) regularly host four different events at the University of Bayreuth: the Basketball Campus Jam, Summerfeeling am Unistrand, Maisel's Weisse Football Tournament, and the Boulder Cup.
These events are organized and run by the students themselves. They provide a great way to gain practical experience, especially in the acquisition of sponsors, public relations, and organizing and running events.
