Thank you for your interest in the Marketing Department of the Kraft
Sports Group. The Marketing Department is responsible for all of the

the spring, summer, and fall semesters. Students conducting full-time

in the office as well as game days and marketing events. Students with
limited time commitment can apply for a game days and marketing events
internship. All internships must be completed for academic credit
