SMGT707 - Exec & Strat leadership in the Sport Ind

Executive and Strategic leadership is often referred to as the highest level and most complex planning activity in any organization. This is also true for sport organizations. As such, it falls to the League Commissioner, Athletic Director, Director of Recreation, and his or her top leadership teams to design, chart, and evaluate corporate level strategy. This course introduces you to the executive and strategic leadership processes in the sport industry and does so by placing you in the role of Commissioner, Athletic Director or Sport manager. In this role, you will be required to make and defend a broad range of strategic decisions. This class will dwell almost exclusively on comprehensive case analysis, or as it is generally called, the Strategic Analysis and the strategic decision-making processes used in the sport industry.
