Learning outcomes

The course aims to provide the students with basic legal and economic notions applied to exercise sciences.
As far as the juridical module is concerned, the course has the objective to give the essential knowledge of the Private and the Pubblic Law, which is preparatory for a later study of some topics more strictly related to the sport sphere, such as, in particular, the participants of the sport system, the main contracts relevant to the sport activity and the liability rules in the sport field.
As far as the themes of the economy applied to the exercise sciences are concerned, the main concepts relat-ed to the economic activity in organized form will be provided, in order to understand its peculiar features, paying particular attention to the economic and financial indicators whose determination is required by the Legislator and necessary in order to perform a cost benefit analysis of the sport activity. In addition, operational aspects will be addressed on the various forms of sporting activities, not neglecting the fiscal consequences, the benefits granted, under various forms, to the world of sport. During the Course we will give also practical information about the various ways to set a sport business activity up, without omitting the related tax effects considering the facilitations granted, in different manners, to the sport world. At the end of the course, the student, using the assimilated knowledge and acquired tools, will have to demonstrate that he is able to perform a cost benefit analysis of the sport activity, so as to be able to correctly evaluate the start and subsequent management.
