Students see Pistons shoot into post-season

It wasn’t quite a set of steak knives, but the students who finished atop a sales assignment in professor Marijke Taks’ class in sport marketing enjoyed their prize anyway.

Dr. Taks arranged for the students to job-shadow members of the Detroit Pistons marketing department on Friday.

“The event and course project overall was a success and it was a great networking tool to see first-hand what a job in the sports management field would be like in the real world,” said student Bryan Dutot.

He and classmates Mitchell Anderson, Maggie Aziz, Aron Burton, Julia Joachimowicz, Thomas Kalbfleisch-Mancini, Johny Keo, Kaz Noda and Cain Walker-Donais also received free tickets to watch Friday’s National Basketball Association game at the Palace of Auburn Hills. The Pistons secured a playoff berth in a 112-99 win over the Washington Wizards.
