New York, NY (PRWEB) April 23, 2015
Artists, entertainers and athletes who wish to earn their MBA now have the opportunity to do just that, thanks to a new Executive MBA Program at the University of Miami.
Anthony Davenport, CEO of Regal Financial in New York City, is pleased to announce that he is teaching credit management and identity theft protection in the MBA program. His class, titled “How to Get a Black Card and Borrow $5M” discussed how people can build the optimal credit profile and obtain premier credit cards.
The program, which is at the University of Miami in Florida, is most notably for NFL players, who are attending the classes during their off season. There are currently around 40 participants in the program, which includes specialized classes to help the players develop their brand.
The most recent installment of classes was held in Los Angeles. Participants toured SpaceX, visited the LA Film School to learn the business aspect of the entertainment industry, and lastly went behind the scenes at the Sony Pictures facilities. The student-athletes also attended classes with leading experts in a variety of fields including CEO of Little Bird, Marshal Kirkpartick, who spoke about social media, Robert Prinable and David Martin who sat down with the athletes to do one-on-one Q12 leadership assessments, and Anthony Davenport, CEO of Regal Financial.
In addition to credit management and identity theft protection, Davenport runs numerous professional education seminars for attorneys, accountants, real estate agents, wealth managers and the general public, including everyone from kids to professional athletes. The professional education seminars that Davenport teaches focus on financial literacy and success.
As Davenport noted, his passion lies in helping people build, restore and protect their credit rating. He enjoys the opportunity to teach financial literacy to those that need it and is passionate about the prospect of instilling important lessons that people don’t learn in school.
This is not the first time that Davenport has been involved in teaching financial-related classes to athletes. As an article on Yahoo notes, Regal Financial was recently part of the Pursuit Financial Excellence Weekend Event held in February in New York City. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan gave an inspirational presentation about the importance of financial education for athletes during the event, and also talked about his own experiences of being involved with financial education for young people. Having worked with many athletes, Davenport noticed that they shockingly face unique credit issues in the course of trying to acquire cars, homes, etc. in spite of their fame and high net worth.
Davenport has also caught the eye of the writers and editors over at Forbes; in one recent article, he discusses the issues that wealthy people have in regards to cyber-security. And in another article from earlier this year, he said, “Wealthy families that do not have a defined cyber-security and credit management strategy in place are virtually giving criminals the keys to the front door.”
