Manhattanville College’s sports management program has done some groundbreaking work. It sounds like more is on the way based on this press release:

Manhattanville College, in conjunction with its Graduate Sports Business Management program announces the establishment of the Manhattanville Sports Analytic Institute. The goals of the Institute are to utilize objective, data-based analysis to address contemporary issues facing the business of sports, which will be of value to sports teams, leagues, player unions, agents, sponsors and other sports-related entities. It will be headed by Manhattanville adjunct professor Vince Gennaro.

“The Sports Analytic Institute is a natural evolution for us, as it will draw heavily on the resources we’ve assembled that form the foundation of our leading sports management program. It’s a great opportunity for our students and faculty to showcase their thought leadership to the sports community,” according to Dave Torromeo, Director of the Graduate Sports Business Management program

The Manhattanville Sports Analytic Institute has named Adjunct Professor Vince Gennaro as its Executive Director. Gennaro, author of Diamond Dollars: The Economics of Winning in Baseball, is a consultant to several Major League Baseball teams and a former Division President at PepsiCo. “I’m excited to help Manhattanville realize its vision of being a leader in sports education and look forward to working with our faculty and students to partner with the sports community to bring quantitative analysis to the forefront in dealing with today’s business challenges,” said Gennaro.

Vince Gennaro has contributed some work to this blog in the past and we’re looking forward to seeing what he and his students come up with. We’ll certainly volunteer space here for any of their work involving the Yankees.
