Valerdi Explores the Complex Science of Sports

The University of Arizona Wildcats basketball team aren't the only ones having a busy spring. Ricardo Valerdi makes a free throw shot while promoting his new course, Sports Analytics

Associate professor Ricardo Valerdi has been making the media rounds, talking about the economic impact of March Madness on Arizona and why a systems engineer is so interested in sports anyway.

Valerdi will debut a new course during the first summer session. Catch a video preview of MGMT 359: Sports Analytics, which covers fundamental analytical skills necessary to be successful in the sports business. It's part of the Eller Sports Management Program, which Valerdi directs.
