Peyton Cochrane

Peyton Cochrane

Originally from San Diego, CA. Peyton Cochrane earned his undergraduate degree in Business Administration from California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks, CA. From there, he decided to pursue his passion for sports where he finds himself entering his final semester at Georgetown University pursuing a Masters in Sports Industry Management. In Washington DC over the past year, he interned with both the Washington Redskins and Georgetown Athletics, which ultimately gave him a taste of both college and professional sports. Cochrane hopes to continue to pursue collegiate athletics, specifically dealing with either marketing or operations. Peyton is a huge sports fan but particularly football. In his free time, if he’s not watching or playing sports, he loves traveling and spending time with friends and family.

Fox Sports U was an incredible opportunity. It provided a glimpse of how we can apply what we’ve learned into a project that would otherwise be a project we would find in a future career. The real world experience is unlike any other class I’ve taken.

The entire experience taught us how to truly develop our creative ideas. The ideas we all started with were completely different than our final products.

I am so thankful for the opportunity provided by this course, the professors who taught it, and the executives that took the time to help and listen to what we had to offer. I would highly suggest this class to anyone!

Fox Sports University allowed me to work collaboratively with my peers in an environment in which strategic marketing, business, and creativity could all take center-stage.

Presenting to Fox Sports representatives significantly improved my understanding of the importance of a strong, thorough, and persuasive presentation.

My Professors in Fox Sports University provided insightful information about their respective experiences in the real-world job market. This proved beneficial for me and my group, shaping the implementation of ideas for our project.
