During his time as President of Basketball Operations for the Minnesota Timberwolves, David Kahn was often criticized on many of the decisions he made in trying to reshape the franchise.
While many basketball minds look at Kahn’s time in Minnesota as a failure, he still is able to make a name for himself and be looked at as someone with wisdom to offer on the subject of decision making in business.
New York University is offering a deal making class with Kahn as the professor for $750. Check out the class description below:
In this intensive weekend course, students will be immersed in the concept of dealmaking, with special emphasis placed on lessons learned in real-life deals from the world of sports, entertainment, and real estate. They will gain a deeper understanding of the key steps required to put together a deal, including building relationships, preparation tactics, identifying what’s important for the other party and how to deliver it, learning when to say no, and understanding that the renewal period for the deal starts the moment it has been completed. This three-day, intensive is designed for anyone interested in the art of the deal, including business leaders, administrators, and executives in dynamic fields that involve personal interaction.
Now that Phil Jackson is in New York, maybe he can drop by the class and learn something.
