Hours

24L

This course applies concepts of analytic management and data analysis to the sports world. The class is intended to deepen the students' ability to apply econometric skills from ECO220Y1. Particular emphasis is given to player management, "on the field" decisions and giving the students the opportunity to do their own analysis while learning frontier techniques. The class will introduce students to some basics of coding and econometric analysis in R. No prior coding experience is required, but basic coding will be necessary and the course provides students with new or deepened skills in that area.
