The focus of Dr. John Francis’ Management 710 class is on the World Business environment. In order for the SMBA ’11 class to better understand this topic there will be a case paper, as well as a group presentation that will deal with topics ranging from MLB labor practices in the Dominican Republic to the internationalization efforts of the NBA and the NFL.

Another resource for this class will be assigned readings from Kuper and Szymanski’s Soccernomics. Much like Moneyball complemented our Statistics’ class, Soccernomics will add to Dr. Francis’ lectures. In this book, the authors dissect the game of soccer and challenge long-held beliefs, apply reason to suggested changes, and provide thoughtful economic analysis.
