Mr. Kahler,

While I respect your right to defend your cash cow, I have to agree with Mr. Cuban here. I landed in the sports business quite by accident, as I was looking to work in a more “attainable” industry like CPG. I never took a sports marketing or sports business class, instead focusing on courses such as pricing, finance, and advanced modeling. In my opinion, a well-rounded skill set is more valuable than knowing what activation means. The latter can easily be picked up in due course, and personally, I would rather have an HBS or Northwestern grad who had a successful marketing career in other industries than someone who has only worked in one industry and can’t see beyond its limited confines.
