Academic Advising and Course Updates

A diverse group of students giving each other high-fives

Academic Updates

A new course, MGEC45H3: Sports Data, Analysis and Economics, is offered by the Department of Management in the Winter 2021 term.
 
This course is intended to apply concepts of analytic management and data science to the sports world. An emphasis of model building and application of models studied previously, including economics and econometrics, is intended to deepen the students’ ability to apply these skills in other areas as well. We will do so by addressing papers at the research frontier, since those papers are an opportunity to learn about the latest thinking. The papers will both be interested in sports intrinsically, and interested in sports as a way to assess other theories that are a part of business education. 
 
Pre-requisite: MGEB12H3
 
Class time: Wednesday, 3:00–5:00p.m.
 
The course is now open for enrollment. If you are interested in the course, you can add it on ACRON before spaces are taken up.
