Background

Professor William Breslove, Ph.D., has taught and served in various administrative positions at Point Park since 1994. Breslove designed and helped launch Point Park University's innovative sport, arts and entertainment management program. Currently, he is working on a three-volume study of the Hashemite Dynasty of Mecca, Transjordan, and Iraq as an instrument of British policy in the Middle East from 1916 through 1967. In addition, Breslove is conducting a study on the failure of traditional business planning, strategy and analytical methods in a "speed of light, super tech world." Breslove advocates a game theory approach to global business.
