No business like show business? This course offers an economic analysis of creative industries defined as industries that produce goods that provide artistic, cultural, or entertainment value for the consumer, including music, movie, television, sports, advertising, fashion, and video games. Students apply economic concepts to understand firms’ strategies as they evaluate, using economic reasoning, the latest trade and scholarly writings in the field. Students also analyze current events in world affairs thanks to classroom debates about controversial issues, and their effect on creative industries. Students also master tools and concepts that allow them to navigate these industries and anticipate emergent trends that shape business strategies.
