Program Description:
**This program is only open to students enrolled in the SDSU sports MBA program. 
Each year, the SDSU Sports MBA program makes a trip to the Dominican Republic as an extension of its International Human Resources course. The program has two main objectives for the trip: first, the students receive a firsthand education in the operations of Major League Baseball on the island. Through visits to MLB team training facilities and seminars conducted by league officials, the Sports MBA cohort acquires a deep understanding of the player development process in the Dominican Republic.

The second objective-figuring out how to use the national passion for baseball to create positive change in Dominican society-requires that students interact closely with community members and observe their greatest needs. Past trips have included activities with local after-school programs, youth baseball teams, and children's shelters. Upon return to San Diego, students combine their local needs assessments with their understanding of Major League Baseball to develop programs that are mutually beneficial for the league and the community.
