Sir Alex Ferguson to Lecture at Harvard University

sir alex ferguson harvard 600x399 Sir Alex Ferguson to Lecture at Harvard University

Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has agreed to take up a long term teaching position at Harvard University in Boston. The 72-year-old Scot, who retired last summer from management after 26 trophy laden years at Old Trafford, will be lecturing Ivy League students on a course named The Business of Entertainment, Media and Sports.

Ferguson had previously been also involved with the prestigious American University, giving a series of interviews to Prof. Anita Elberse in 2012, while his blueprint for managerial success was included in the Harvard Business Review in October.

Students from many leading Universities have taken projects on Ferguson’s leadership theories and have interacted with him before as well.

The program involving Ferguson will run from May 7-10.

Sir Alex Ferguson said:

“The time I have already spent in Harvard has been a stimulating experience and I look forward to developing my relationship and activities with the students, faculty and friends of the Harvard Business School community.”

Prof. Anita Elberse added:

“We look forward to welcoming Sir Alex Ferguson on the HBS campus to share his remarkable leadership journey and to contribute to our Executive Education participants’ ability to make a profound difference in the world.”

    Apparently he’s going to skip the lesson about succession planning.
