The Undergraduate Sport Business Management Program at UCF was established in 2005. To celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the undergraduate program, Dr. Harrison and Prof. Bukstein selected 10 students and one former student to join them on a journey to Paris and London in May 2015 to visit with and learn from sport business industry leaders. Students spent six days touring facilities and learning more about the European sport business model from executives at the following sport organizations and locations:
* Stade de France
* Ligue de Football Professionnel
* French Open / Roland Garros
* Paris-Sorbonne University
* INSEP (national training center for French Olympians)
* Lord’s Cricket Grounds
* London Olympic Park
* Fulham Football Club
* Arsenal Football Club
