About The Event

Objective

Teachers will be able to:

– Explain how incentives impact decisions, behaviors and stakeholders.

– Examine what role college sports play in business revenues.

Description

We will use collegiate sports as a backdrop to discuss how institutions and interests can shape the “rules of the game.”  Review the origins of the NCAA and how it has evolved into the Power 5 conferences.

Economic studies show how home games impact local business revenues. The impact of COVID-19 on the world of college sports will also be explored.
