Impact for structures of the industry
Sports is not only one of the largest hobbies on earth, but also has wide connections to public institutions on all levels, making its underlying industry structure more transparent than for more privatized and larger industries. This transparency offers the unique opportunity to gain a holistic view of governance and political structures to develop future-focused solutions, applicable beyond sports.
On our platform, we aim to create unique and valuable insights to define the future of the European sports system. We started this platform in 2021 with the inception of our Global Risk Report project. For autumn of 2021, we will work with McKinsey & Company to create a section of the McKinsey Sporting goods report 2022.
Our general approach for projects on these platforms is to onboard a team of dedicated students that complete either a workshop or longer-term industry project with a partner on a question relevant to the industry. This practical approach created profound and deep insights combining academic knowledge and practical challenges. We would like to thank our partners for the insightful current and past collaborations.
Our industry projects generally run on a semester basis aligned with the semester dates in St. Gallen. We start projects in February and September and end them in July and December. Each platform has freedom regarding the exact mode of creation of impulses. In general, the aim is to create a published output that can qualitatively or even quantitatively illustrate the value for the discourse of the specific platform.
