Changed the Premier League for the Ivy League
Sir Alexander Chapman Ferguson (aka Alex Ferguson or Fergie) has secured a long-term teaching position at Harvard University, according to The Telegraph.
At Harvard (located in Cambridge, Ma.) Ferguson will lecture senior executives enrolled in a programme called “The Business of Entertainment, Media and Sports”.
The 72-year-old retired football manager from Glasgow had previously collaborated with Harvard researcher Anita Elberse, according to Eurosport.
I’m delighted to have the opportunity and privilege to contribute to such a respected centre of excellence… The time I have already spent at 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. Sir Alex Ferguson.
