Bachelor's degree in business administration with a sports management concentration

Sports management major Kevin CoyneKevin chose Becker College for its business administration sports management concentration because, he says, “I am able to explore many different options with a business major from Becker College. I am also a student-athlete, so the ability to work in the business field within a sports organization is a phenomenal opportunity.” He is also pursuing a minor degree in creative writing—a passion that was sparked by a class taught by Becker College Professor M.T. Nezam-Mafi. Kevin is currently editor-in-chief of the Becker Journal Online.

Kevin participates in a number of extracurricular activities, both on and off the Becker College campus. He is seriously involved in the Special Olympics, serving as a development intern and event organizer for the Massachusetts branch. Signifying the start of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, accompanied by one of the Olympic athletes, he had the opportunity to skate the Special Olympics torch around the DCU Center in Worcester, Mass.

For his work coordinating a Special Olympics Massachusetts Unified basketball game at Becker College, in which athletes from Seven Hills Family Services were paired with Becker College students, faculty, and staff volunteers, Kevin received the Colleges of Worcester Consortium Community Engagement Award. Kevin firmly believes in the value of community service because it “fosters collective growth, Becker pride, and reminds Becker College students that growing outside of the classroom is important.”
