Sir Alex Ferguson has accepted a long-term teaching position at Harvard University where he will lecture senior executives, ESPN reports.
The former Manchester United manager, who was the subject of a study by the Ivy League university last year, has a role teaching a course called ‘The Business of Entertainment, Media and Sports’.
The 72-year-old retired in 2013 after winning 49 trophies, including 38 in his 26-year stay at Old Trafford.
Ferguson, winner of 13 league titles and two Champions Leagues in his time at United, said, “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.”
Ferguson’s blueprint and beliefs were the subject of a study by Harvard Business School Professor Anita Elberse called ‘Sir Alex Ferguson: Managing Manchester United’.
