FOR RELEASE: Immediate, Friday, October 13, 2000

Business students at Hudson Valley Community College will have another transfer option beginning this year. Hudson Valley and The College of Saint Rose have agreed to extend their current Business Administration transfer agreement to include Saint Rose's new Sport Management concentration.

Students who complete the concentration may pursue a variety of careers, including marketing, facility management, sports information, and sports event programming. This is the only sports-related business degree program available at a Capital Region higher education institution.

The Sport Management program currently offers internships with several local professional teams, including the Albany River Rats, Albany Firebirds and Albany-Colonie Diamond Dogs. With a new Class-A minor league baseball team scheduled to set up shop at Hudson Valley Community College during the next two years, internship possibilities could be expanded to include that team as well.

"This is another excellent opportunity for our students," said Hudson Valley Community College President John Buono. "We are proud to once again associate with The College of Saint Rose, where so many of our graduates continue their education."

Hudson Valley Community College and The College of Saint Rose have enjoyed an articulation agreement for their Business Administration programs for more than a decade. Students wishing to complete a bachelor's degree at Saint Rose can complete a set curriculum at Hudson Valley and may transfer directly to Saint Rose as juniors. The new Sport Management concentration is a concentration of The College of Saint Rose's School of Business.

"We are excited to offer this new concentration, and to include it in our articulation agreement partnership with Hudson Valley Community College," said Severin Carlson, Dean of the Saint Rose School of Business.
