Major League Soccer
Southern New Hampshire University is proud to be the Official Education Partner of Major League Soccer. Through this partnership, SNHU is helping MLS players, retired players and staff members achieve their goals with flexible online education.
The innovative partnership features internship opportunities for SNHU students, as well as projects with real-world applications. For example, students from a data analytics course helped an MLS club when they analyzed information about the players' training habits.
The relationship also emphasizes community-based initiatives aimed at supporting youth programs, local charities and the military in major cities. Among these is the 20 for 20 Mini-Pitch Initiative, co-sponsored by MLS WORKS, adidas, Southern New Hampshire University and the U.S. Soccer Foundation. The goal is to build 20 mini soccer fields in city neighborhoods, creating a safe place to play for children in underserved communities.
