Welcome to the Spurs Sports & Entertainment Talent Academy page!

Are you looking for a career in sports? Introducing the SS&E Talent Academy! The objective of the Talent Academy is to identify the next top talented leader and equip those young professionals with the knowledge, experience and mentoring relationships to become early leaders in their careers.

Our SS&E Talent Academy has two distinct programs for college students:

Talent Academy-Professional Internship

The seasonal internship is a 10-month full-time rotational program giving enrolled college or technical school students insight into professional sports business and venue operations through an immersive learning environment. They’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at the operations for NBA and USL franchises and professional event management.

Talent Academy- Associate’s program

The Associate’s program is a one to two-year full-time program for post graduate degree candidates. Associates are partnered directly with a high-level SS&E leadership and immersed in their day-to-day responsibilities directly impacting strategic achievement of organizational goals. Year one is hyper focused on developing skills for success in the sports industry while year two grants increased leadership training and opportunities.
