Free Course: The Global Business of Sports

In The Global Business of Sports, professor Kenneth L. Shropshire analyzes the business side of sports and discusses the intricacies of global sports leagues. The new course, which will run again beginning July 2015, will now include research drawn from Shropshire’s new book, Sport Matters: Leadership, Power, and the Quest for Respect in Sports.

In Sport Matters, Shropshire examines the need for diversity, inclusion, respect, and equality in sports, focusing on the need for leadership to embrace and deliver these principles in a real and tangible way within the sports industry. He looks at several high-profile controversies from the headlines and uses them as a prism for exploring the leadership challenges facing team owners, management, players, and fans.

The Global Business of Sports is offered on Coursera and is available for free around the world.
