 Short Videos by Bocconi Faculty

When Your Opponent Is a Teammate
An analysis of tweets regarding female soccer in the US, conducted by Department of Marketing’s Federico Rossi, shows that rivalry among athletes spills over to the virtual field. Conversations are boosted by sports events and by athletes’ tweets. Every time an athlete tweets, on the one hand total audience for the discipline rises, on the other the audience of athletes similar to the tweeting one is eroded. Teammates are the one who have more to loose, then.

Living in the Era of Data-Driven Economy
Businesses all around the world are in need of professionals able to exploit the new oil, that is data, Emanuele Borgonovo states in this video. Gathering data is not enough, you have to let them speak. The new professionals must be able to read data through the lenses of economic and managerial models. That’s what the new Bachelor in Economics, Management and Computer Science is for.

Big Data Vs. Climate Change
Tools aimed to process huge amounts of data can be used also to fight climate change, Department of Economics’ Valentina Bosetti argues. They allow to better understand popular mood through the cross-analysis of climate events and people’s reactions on Twitter and to design climate policies tailor-made for local communities’ needs.
