Meet The Class - Vinay
One of the unique attributes of the DeVos Sport Business Management Program is the network of students who make up our program. Our class will take every course together during our tenure here at UCF and we will work on countless group projects and collaborative efforts. As a result of our shared interests in the business of sport, a natural team camaraderie is formed. However, our team is composed of people from diverse backgrounds, experiences and ambitions. We offer profiles of class members to give you an idea as to the type of people who make up our program, individuals who collectively will be leaders in sport and society and will be teammates for life.

Reasons for Choosing the DeVos Program: The DeVos program was a place where I could see myself helping to change the sports industry for the better.

If you could play a round of golf with any three sports figures (dead or alive, on the field or off) who would you choose and why?
Tiger Woods – It would be fun to watch the greatest golf star and then have him teach me to play.
Joe Torre – The best manager in all of baseball. He was an inspiration and a great role model.
Tony Dungy – My favorite coach with the Bucs and a great man. I would just like to talk to him about his career and life.
