The Baseball Businessby Dave Studeman
October 04, 2012
This past year, I twice had the pleasure of serving as a judge in Vince Gennaro's Diamond Dollars Baseball Case Competition. Vince's idea is brilliant: develop a business school case study about baseball and ask teams of business school students to present their recommendations for the case. Just like they do at Harvard Business School, and just about every other business school I know.
Last March, the University of Chicago's Booth School took the honors, against some tough competition such as Northwestern's Kellogg Business school, the University of Florida and a surprise team of undergrads from Yale. Picking the best presentation was tough.
Well, Vince is at it again. He's organized a case competition this Nov. 2 at NYU's Tisch Center for Sports Management and other things. If you're in the New York area and want to participate, contact Vince directly on this webpage. If not, you just might enjoy dropping by and listening in.
Dave was called a "national treasure" by Rob Neyer. Seriously. Comments about this article can be sent to him through the miracle of e-mail.
