At the conference, Magazine will serve on a panel with fellow professors from Yale University, University of Southern California, University of Iowa and INSEAD. They will address such topics as the importance and methods of teaching a sports analytics course, and how analytics impact and change the management of sports.

The overall conference agenda will address a variety of subjects and include analytics on basketball, soccer, hockey, football, how to launch a career in sports and the use of analytics for competitive advantage.
