Brandon Marshall + Harvard Business School = ???

This one of the more interesting stories about a member of the Bears this offseason. Brandon Marshall posted on his instagram a picture of his acceptance email into Harvard Business School Executive Education program. The program is titled “The Business of Entertainment, Media and Sports”. The schools website describes the program as focusing “on the unique challenges of developing, distributing, and marketing a successful entertainment offering,” and says participants “emerge with a deeper understanding of the steps needed to create sustainable competitive advantage” (Chicago Tribune).

Throughout his career Marshall has shown an interest in branding, wearing bright orange cleats for an endorsement deal, drawing a fine from the league. As well as wearing lime green cleats on a nationally televised game to raise awareness for mental health. Something that he was also fined for.

Not to bad for a guy that was branded as a loose cannon, and disrespectful for his first few years in the league. Some guys take a little longer to grow up, but when they do, they are able to accomplish amazing things. Congratulations to you Mr. Marshall.
