Every student in the parks, recreation and sport degree program is required to complete an internship, which allows them to apply the academic knowledge they have gained in a professional setting. For Logan Brinkley, that internship led to a full-time job offer. Brinkley spent his final semester at University of Missouri in Las Vegas as a global partnerships intern with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Once that experience ended, a full-time opening came available – and he jumped at the opportunity. For nearly three years, Brinkley has been a Global Partnerships Coordinator with the UFC.
