The Denver Broncos and Colorado State University are teaming up to create The Denver Broncos Sports Management Institute. This program will debut this spring by offering three courses to select CSU undergraduate students. The classes will count toward a newly developed minor in sports management at Colorado State, pending faculty council approval.

Students will benefit from a variety of course offerings developed by Colorado State faculty and take part in hands-on experiences and opportunities with the Denver Broncos organization. The program will include internships with the Broncos, guest lectures from management and case studies developed in coordination with the team.
