The purpose of this study was to examine differences between intern and non-intern students in terms of their perspectives on sport management internship within the context of field experience. The subjects of the study were a total of 189 students. They were 4th year students who completed their internship and 3rd year students who were yet to complete their internship course. Participants were sport management students studying in four different universities in Turkey. Data were collected by survey method. The questionnaire used in this study was a 5-point Likert Scale type questionnaire which consisted of five sections and 48 items. Cronbach alpha internal consistency coefficient was 0.91. The results of the study showed that there were statistically no significant differences (p>0.05) between the sections about the contribution of internship to the employers and students. On the other hand there was a significant difference (p<0.05) between perspectives in 5 items including role of work environment, abilities of interns and work selection. The results of the study showed that there was no significant difference between the perspectives of the interns who completed their internship and non-interns who were yet to complete their internship course. The differences that arose for five items are considered to be caused by experiences of the interns.
