Management major (and sports lover) Tyler Kiely ’19 is pursuing his personal, academic and career goals as a Fan & Youth Engagement Representative at Fenway Park.
Having accomplished his newly refined goal as early as his sophomore year at Emmanuel, Kiely has already hit it out of the park. As a management major with a concentration in marketing and sport management, his role as Fan & Youth Engagement Representative has allowed him to pursue his personal, academic and career goals all at once. Kiely first began as in intern in April 2017, serving as a Fan Clubs Representative. Now a rising senior, his role has since evolved into his current position, in which he assists the Red Sox Marketing Department in a multitude of ways, both inside the Park and beyond.
Kiely has benefitted greatly from the individualized guidance he has received from his instructors in the business & economics department at Emmanuel, namely Professor Kelly Grant and Dr. Jing Yang. This mentorship, paired with his already-robust internship experience, has enabled Kiely to turn his knowledge into know-how, transforming concepts learned in the classroom into practical skills in the outside word.
“The professors in the business & economics department have taught me about not only the core concepts of the business environment, but more importantly, how to implement them successfully,” says Kiely.
