JOIN OUR TEAM - Timberwolves Sports Marketing Internships


Marketing/Promotion interns are the face of NU Athletics. They interact with fans and the public constantly and therefore must be professional, friendly, and have an enthusiastic attitude for promoting Timberwolves athletic events. Marketing/Promotion interns will gain valuable hands on experience in marketing and fan development and learn the behind-the-scenes of a collegiate athletic event. In the year long internship interns will work extensively in promoting our ticketed sports through the fall winter, and select sports in the spring while trying to improve attendance, the gameday fan experience, and generate revenue for the Athletic Department.
