Presentation Overview
  • Summary of roundtable from inaugural CSRI Conference in Memphis.
  • Finding and results – the over-aching dilemma for practitioners and academicians to overcome
  • The connection issues as related to social and managerial theory/practice
  • Recommendations for moving forward
purpose
Purpose
  • Present conclusions from the findings of last year’s roundtable, which show that there is a need for further analysis of theoretical research and application methods related to this interaction of sociological theory and management science.
  • College sports have a significant opportunity to serve as the catalyst for this analysis because they are simultaneously in a business environment and the academic environment.
purpose4
Purpose
  • If college sports can address these issues, there is a real possibility the results can be effectively utilized by the rest of the sport marketing industry segment, and hence enhance the entire sport industry by articulating the connection between social and financial concepts.
