ECO353H1F Special Topics in Economics with Data Analytics: Sports Economics

This applied economics course used both theoretical and empirical analysis to explore aspects of the economics of sports and sports leagues. We start by considering the business of professional sports—how teams and leagues make money—and then delve into further topics including competitive-balance policies, athlete labour markets, and the relationship between professional leagues and their amateur counterparts (e.g., US university sports). Representative data assignments include exploring team profitability and athlete value.
