Podcast: Mark Conrad on the business of sports
If you’re a sports fan, you probably know that college basketball’s March Madness tournament just wrapped up, that the new baseball season is underway, and (of course) that football will start in the fall.
You may not know, however, that the professional sports market in the United States was worth about $60 billion in 2014. According to Forbes, it is expected to reach $73 billion by 2019, making the business of sports bigger than ever.

Mark Conrad, associate professor and director of the sports business concentration, shares his predictions about leagues such as the NFL, Major League Baseball, and the NCAA in this podcast produced by Fordham News.
