Leerdoelen This course analyses developments and events in sports from an economic point of view. After following this course, the student is able to analyse sport and organisation of professional sport as an economic process, discuss supply and demand in professional sport, the impact of economic effects of large sport events. This knowledge is applied in a paper.
Omschrijving This course consists of two parts. In the main lectures, a review is given of modern literature on the economics of sports. Important topics are: demand for sports, supply of sports, the outcome of sport events, the market for (top)talent, sport and the government, economic effects of major sport events, marketing of sports. Some lectures are more research oriented, when recent papers are discussed. Finally, students write a paper in teams on a topic of their choice. Of course, that topic should be related to sports economics. One or two guest lecturers will provide another perspective on current developments.
