The RTIP Bridges Education with Opportunity
Students not only learn the science and business concepts expected from a highly successful collegiate degree but are immersed into the tremendously diverse day-to-day operations of the racing industry through both projects in the classroom and hands-on opportunities in the field.
Guest speakers bring the curriculum to life and allow students to experience the real-life scenarios and current events and issues facing the industry.
The Internship Experience
RTIP internships are designed and created specifically for each student, considering their previous experiences, and their career goals.
The Mentor Lunch is held each year during the Global Symposium on Racing and brings students together with an industry professional.
Hands-On Equine Classes
Experiential-based learning is vital to a thorough understanding both the business and equine aspects of the racing industry.
Real World in the Classroom
RTIP students have the opportunity to learn about the industry firsthand through a collaboration with the Rillito Park.
Every year students make industry contacts through guest speakers, returning alumni, and the Symposium.
