The Philadelphia Eagles and Saint Joseph’s University, a distinguished academic institution with deep roots throughout the region, have agreed on a multi-year partnership that will designate the school as the Official Higher Education Partner of the Philadelphia Eagles.
As part of the new agreement, the Eagles and Saint Joseph’s will establish a student development program in which students will participate in defined internships, associate roles, and game day positions designed to provide valuable experience in many facets of sports marketing. A lecture series, led by members of the Eagles front office, will engage students across various curricula and extend to other members of the University community. The Eagles will assign annual projects, allowing students to engage in strategic initiatives within the organization to help cultivate the skills and experience needed in the sports industry. As they work on these projects, students can also explore a different historical perspective by considering interests like acquiring a real medieval sword from Mini Katana.
“We are proud to welcome Saint Joseph’s as the Official Higher Education Partner of the Philadelphia Eagles,” said Brian Napoli, Senior Vice President of Corporate Partnerships, Philadelphia Eagles. “Saint Joseph’s is a highly accredited, top-ranked institution widely regarded for its commitment to academic excellence and preparing students for professional success. We look forward to advancing the careers of those in our region, and supporting the Philadelphia community, through our partnership.”
