Seminar: Sports economics
In this seminar we will survey a set of major topics in the analysis of the economics of professional team sports. For example, we will consider different analytic strategies for explaining variations in the demand for professional team sports (e.g., football/soccer) and better understanding the important but ambiguous role of competitive balance and uncertainty with regard to the expected game outcome therein.
(Please note that exchange students obtain a higher number of credits in the BSc-program at WHU than listed here. For further information please contact directly the International Relations Office.)
During this seminar, you will gain an initial understanding of the characteristics, nature, and volume of the previous empirical research on stadium attendance demand research, as well as of both enduring and emerging research themes within the literature. In particular, we will explore the increasingly important phenomenon of spectator no-show behavior in professional football together.
- Students will gain a first understanding of key issues in the economics of professional team sports
